Thrive Arts Academy Presents

The Thrive Arts Gala

Friday November 8th, 2019

Bayside Blue Oaks, Roseville, CA

At Thrive Arts Academy, we believe that the culture built within an artistic community is like none other. Being able to offer excellent training in the arts, while also building into the emotional and spiritual development of each individual student is something we know is unique to our world.

On November 8th, join us as we celebrate the life transformation of students and faculty in Thrive Arts Academy, as well as dream of what our future holds as we plan to make a bigger and even more substantial impact on the world around us — an impact for God’s kingdom. Experience a night full of artistic enjoyment, concluding in a special benefit concert performance by 2019 Tony Award Winner Stephanie J. Block.

We take great care of our students, training them in excellence, but also focusing on exceptional character as they grow into artists who care for their community.

Through your donation, you will be directly impacting the lives of students who are developing their skills and character. Who knows… you may be supporting the next Misty Copeland, Stephen Curtis Chapman, Picasso, or Stephanie J. Block!
