Give a chance to grow...

The Hoogland Center for the Arts believes all children should have the opportunity to receive an education in the Fine Arts.  The Hoogland Music & Theatre Education's mission is to foster an educational environment nurturing creative talent, supporting positive self image and infusing artistic leaders into the community.

The Young Artists Fund offers scholarship funds to families in financial need for youth and teen educational programs at the Hoogland Center for the Arts. Funds are also used to assist area schools in presenting theatrical productions and to purchase education materials for fine arts classes. With assistance by St. John's Hospital, businesses in Springfield, and gracious patrons, this fund allows all children a chance to explore their gifts in the performing arts.

Child's yearly tuition: $400

All donations are welcome. If you or your business are interested in contributing to the Young Artists Fund, please contact the Hoogland.
