Upturn Arts mission is to provide “Arts for All!” and will not turn away a young artist due to a family’s inability to pay. Fifty percent (50%) of the children who attend Upturn Arts’ programming are provided with scholarships on a sliding scale based on his/her guardians’ financial situation. We offer various scholarship amounts ranging from 22% – 100% of tuition paid for families who make $65,000 or less. Scholarship amounts are based on family size, income, special circumstances, and Upturn Arts’ current funding situation.
