YUHSD Mastery of the Arts Program to host informational night on May 1

The new Yuma Union High School District Mastery of the Arts Program (MAP) is hosting its second informational night on Monday, May 1, 2023 from 6-7 p.m. at Snider Auditorium on the Yuma High School campus.

The event is open to all of Yuma County.

“Families can learn details about what the program is going to consist of, including basic details and logistics, possible class offerings, and much more,” MAP Executive Director Ginny Legros said. “We’re just excited to share these additional opportunities in the arts for YUHSD students.”

The program, which opens in the 2023-24 school year, is designed for all YUHSD students who have a purposeful interest within the arts.

The intent is to work collaboratively with each of the YUHSD high schools’ fine arts programs and community artists to grow, enhance, and refine a student’s skill sets within the art disciplines. All program courses are designed to be an extension of a student’s fine arts high school experience. The courses are open to 9-12th grade students interested in taking coursework beyond, and in addition to, their home high school offerings. All courses offered will fulfill elective credit only.
