CPS All-City Arts Programming provides greater equity and access to arts programming and celebrates the amazing creativity, talent, and learning of CPS students. Several opportunities exist for students in all four state recognized arts disciplines: visual art, music, dance, and theatre.

All-City Performing Arts Programs

Rehearsals and performances take place on Saturdays: In the fall, regional rehearsals and the culminating performances happen at two different CPS High schools in the North and South regions of the city.  In the spring, rehearsals take place at Jones College Prep High School, and the final culminating performance will take place downtown at The Harris Theater for Music and Dance.

All-City Visual Art Programs

Gallery exhibitions of student art work created during school time are coordinated and curated by their CPS art teachers… find out how.
