SOY engages students to participate in a lot of cultural events in the city, encouraging them to contribute their artistic talents and showcase their dance & visual arts.
SOY has been a part of the Costa Mesa summer concert series called Concerts in the Park for the past 3 years. The SOY art students have assisted in bringing an art activity for all the youth of the city to enjoy, including a paint by number mural, customizing your own t-shirt, and painting on a small canvas. Not only do our art students carry out these free activities for all the children during the outdoor concerts, but the rest of our students commit to helping with the setup and breakdown of these concerts. Last year in 2013, SOY was funded a grant with proceeds from one of the Concerts going to support SOY’s Arts and Music Programs.
