Join us in celebrating the opening of the new Yucaipa Performing Arts Center. April 11, 2019, from 3-6pm.

Ceremony starts at 3pm. Tours are until 6pm.

The Yucaipa Performing Arts Center (YPAC) is a multi-use venue in the heart of Historic Uptown Yucaipa which is located at the base of the San Bernardino National Forest. The City of Yucaipa completed construction of the building in 2019, providing a space for all types of performing arts including concerts, dance, community theater, galas, and major events. The 16,000 sq. ft. facility includes a flexible theater with retractable seating, a black box stage, classroom spaces, and an outdoor stage facing the new 14,000 sq. ft. Uptown Park. The City hosts a number of festivals in the Uptown district throughout the year, all of which incorporate live music, and aim to promote community engagement through the arts.

Arts Connection's newest board member will be exhibiting a new series of photographs at the Gresham Art Gallery at San Bernardino Valley College, February 11-28, 2019. Thomas explains that "the exhibit explores human interface within various environments. However, I am exploring extreme and vertical panographic images. This type of photo absolutely challenges perception. With "Imperfect Construct," the lens is moved through space during exposure and imperfect representation space prevails. Objects are stretched or compressed or even erased. These works may send you down the rabbit hole."

The Opening will be February 20 - 5-7pm. 

Keyboard Art is the largest private school in the Tri-Community.   The teachers at our school are accomplished musicians, artists, yoga, martial arts, culinary, and science instructors with academic degrees, and decades of experience practicing, performing and teaching.  We specialize in performance, composition, music theory, music literacy, artistic and musical expression, movement arts, culinary arts and hands on science.  We believe that learning, experiencing, and creating, benefits children emotionally, mentally and physically and is the key to artistic success. 

All of our Master Teachers for music have more than 35 years of teaching in their field of expertise.  Most have either a Masters or Doctorate Degree in Music and/or Music Education and are qualified to provide the training necessary to prepare students for college admittance if they choose music as their major.  We are proud of the fact that we have successfully launched several students into their music careers.

He graduated from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena with a degree in advertising illustration, which trained him to work in the communication arts. He began his teaching career at Chaffey College, the La Sierra campus of Loma Linda University, and the University of California at Riverside on a wide range of fine and commercial art topics.
