Abrons Arts Center's Education Programs are built on the belief that arts and culture build healthy communities, and that access to a diverse range of creative opportunities enriches the lives of the people we serve.

Group Classes

Courses in music, dance, theater, and visual arts for children (3–12), teens (12–19) and adults that encourage participatory skill building in a nurturing collaborative environment.

Private Lessons

Private music lessons allow students, ages 5 to adult learners, to receive one-on-one instruction from professional musicians across many instruments.


In addition to our Group Classes and Private Lessons, we’re excited to offer several short-term workshops. These shorter workshops have been designed for those wanting to gain new skill sets and knowledge in an interactive and supportive environment.


Abrons Arts Center education partnerships deliver classes, workshops, and projects in Dance, Theater, Music, and Visual Arts within the Department of Education as well as within the larger Henry Street Settlement agency.

NYCHA Arts Initiative

Abrons Arts Center’s NYCHA Arts Initiative expands access to the arts by offering FREE arts programs to residents living in New York City public housing.
