About TAP

Tahoe Arts Project

Tahoe Arts Project (“TAP”) was established in 1987 by a group of parents,professional musicians and teachers to bring performing arts and cultural enrichment to schools in the South Lake Tahoe region in both CA & NV.

TAP’s artists-in-schools programs meet the need for high quality fine arts activities for the children in grades K -12
Artists also perform one Public show for the Tahoe Community to enjoy.
Our programs include acclaimed performing artists from various genres and cultures and have been nationally recognized as a role model for other arts-in-education organizations.

TAP reaches over 5,000 students, within 10 schools in El Dorado, Douglas, and Alpine counties of California and Nevada. The artists whom students meet through the TAP programs serve as role models that demonstrate the values of self-discipline and the pursuit of excellence.
Current research validates TAP’s philosophy that these experiences also help students develop their own creative and problem solving abilities, foster intellectual development and success in all academic areas.

The mission of TAP is to provide cultural enrichment and diversity for the community through the arts and education with particular focus on our youth.
