The mission of the Incredible Children’s Art Network (iCAN) is to bring high quality arts programs to children in Santa Barbara County, particularly those least likely to receive them.
Through sustained creative learning opportunities that emphasize both artistic excellence and access, iCAN seeks to affect positive social change in the communities it serves.
Musical Mentors is an opportunity for college students to work alongside the Music Program teaching staff and directly interact with all elements of iCAN Music. The program was piloted in the spring of 2013 with students from Westmont College. It was profoundly successful and will continue this fall. Watch this short video capturing reflections from the Westmont mentors, teaching artists and iCAN students.
