The Arden is a safe place for kids and teens!
A recent study conducted by Dr. James Catterall, Professor at the UCLA Graduate School of Education & Information Studies, finds that students involved in the arts watch less TV and display more tolerant behavior toward different racial groups than students with similar profiles who are not involved in the arts. By involving your child in the theatre arts, you are opening up a world of personal and artistic experiences, enhancing their love of literature and reading, and offering them a positive outlet to understand the world around them.
