A Chance to Hope: Exposing Young Imaginations to Art

Dive into the world of budding artistry by exploring Wonderbound's in-school programs, high school internships and Art Squad. Investing in the early careers of future artists is a top priority for Wonderbound. In fact, our Creative Director, Garrett Ammon, knows first-hand how powerful such initiatives can be—his first tastes of dance came through similar outreach efforts.

Such programming is especially necessary in Colorado. Currently, the state ranks 42nd in the nation for arts funding per capita.* Without fostering the creative capacity and confidence of the next generation, our artistic ecosystem will devolve and eventually disappear. As a professional arts organization, we are honored to ensure that appreciation for the arts is passed on to future generations.
