P.S. Arts is dedicated to advancing equity and opportunity for children and youth by providing arts education in systemically under-resourced schools and communities.
The P.S. in P.S. Arts stands for public schools. Dr. Paul Cummins founded P.S. Arts in 1991 with seed funding from musician and philanthropist, Herb Alpert. They recognized that a steady decline in funding since the late 1970s had produced massive resource inequities in California public schools, and arts programs were virtually nonexistent in the schools serving the highest numbers of youth affected by poverty and systemic racism.
