Leap’s mission is to provide top quality arts education programs that help students build skills to achieve their fullest potential. We envision a world where art is a fundamental part of every child’s education and success.
Today Leap’s art and architecture residency programs serve 7,000 Bay Area children each year, offering students the opportunity to engage in visual and performing art and architectural learning experiences that enhance their overall education, and prepare them for future success in school, in their communities and in life.
Residency projects are designed with classroom curriculum, students, families and community in mind, and as such, focus on enhancing cultural awareness, individual empowerment and equity within and across local communities while promoting a broader sense of self and environment for each student.
Performances, culminating events, and visual arts projects executed by the artists/architects and students bring communities together to recognize their children as individuals with special talents and newly increased levels of self-confidence, thus encouraging family involvement in all aspects of students’ lives.
