For over 20 years, CEPA Gallery has partnered with Western New York educators and artists to provide communities with a unique selection of short and long-term arts education programs. Serving hundreds of children each year, CEPA’s arts education programs combine photography, literary arts, and technology and are designed according to the needs and interests of the school or community. The demonstrative power and impact of CEPA’s programs were recognized with a 2013 National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award. Administered by the President’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities and presented to CEPA by First Lady Michelle Obama during a White House ceremony in November 2013, this award is our nation’s highest recognition for Arts Education programming
