"It's not just about the arts. It's about the kids. We're making Nevada a better place to live by helping our kids."

Think back to when you were in school. What is your fondest memory? Was it a field trip to attend a concert or theater performance, or was it playing a part in a class play, singing in the choir, playing an instrument or having your work of art exhibited at school?

Arts experiences inspire and engage students, and often shape their lives.

Since The Smith Center’s inception, it has been the mission of our Education and Outreach Department to build these life-long memories by offering enriching arts experiences for students, teachers and community members across Southern Nevada. Each year, we reach students and adults with a variety of programs including student matinees, master classes, and in-school performances as well as regular engagements with community organizations and families. These experiences offer many individuals their first exposure to the performing arts and create lifelong supporters of the arts.

The Smith Center Education and Outreach Department is housed in the Elaine Wynn Studio for Arts Education inside the Boman Pavilion.
