Aimee Art Productions:
Building Self-Esteem & Literacy Through the Arts
Aimee Art Productions is proud to be a part of Glenoaks Elementeray School! For six years now, Ms. Aimee has served as the Music teacher for TK-2nd grade and our SDC students, made possible by funding from the Glenoaks Elementary School Foundation.
Our company is comprised of teaching artists who are passionate about learning and arts, and who strive to bring quality arts instruction to a variety of settings around Los Angeles, including schools, non-profits, and private families’ homes, through enriching, multicultural, esteem-building and team-building experiences in Theatre, Music, Dance and Visual Arts. Our mission is to build the self-esteem of the children of Los Angeles while nurturing their literacy in both their art form of choice, in its connections to Reading, Math, Social Studies and Science, and finally to arts careers and to other art forms. We promote education through the arts!
