Youth Artist Guild Lubbock and the EDGE Theatre are teaming up to bring educational programming to the Lubbock community! We are focusing on Early Childhood, Special Needs, and Homeschool students.

Each of our classes are taught by professors, certified teachers (current and retired), and industry professionals with many years of experience in their respective fields. 

It is our hope that this program will continue to grow providing opportunities for education in the arts so that younger generations can become well-rounded artists and creative thinkers.

It is our privilege to provide a safe, fun, and nurturing environment in which students may grow and develop a sense pf purpose and pride in themselves.

Thank you for entrusting your student's education to us.
