ACES Arts and Culture Program

The ACES Arts and Culture Program enters its 5th year this Fall 2020! Our focus is to nurture our creative ACES students who are considering a pathway to visual/media/technological and performing arts instruction, and careers in the arts. Our students have opportunities to meet and develop mentorships with renown artists throughout the Washington metropolitan area at our annual “Careers in the Arts” workshops at Strathmore, as well as have opportunities to meet our Montgomery College faculty members in the thriving Visual, Performing and Media Arts Department. The experiences include personalized tours with professors explaining their specific department’s courses/programs, pre-performance dinners and front row seats to MC performances, as well as mentor- introductions.  Our overall goal is to help nurture one’s pathway through MC to consolidate skills for a healthy and robust career in the arts. The program remains committed to providing opportunities for our ACES High School and MC students to attend arts and cultural events at major performing and visual arts organizations in the DC metropolitan area, but only when our country recovers from the pandemic/COVID-19 virus.

Our overall program mission remains clear – to creatively collaborate and nurture – always reconfirming the value, power, and importance of the arts in our culture, especially in 21st century. With the arts, we are given momentum to be empathic individuals, a compassionate community, and an inclusive society.

We welcome you to browse our Year-In-Review highlights, Fall 2019 – Early Spring 2020.

Our program would simply not exist if it were not for the generous spirit of the performing and visual arts organizations who graciously donated complimentary and/or discounted tickets to our program. We invite you to visit them and experience their expertise and community spirit by supporting their many extraordinary offerings! You will not be disappointed!
