Mission Statement

The Arts & Learning Conservatory ( A&L) is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing premier arts instruction to students regardless of race, age, income or level of experience. Our motto is Creativity for Life and we believe that all students should have an inspiring and gratifying opportunity to learn the performing arts through active participation.


Our programs are first and foremost designed to provide students with a solid, foundational structure in the arts. Each program in which our students participate then builds upon that foundation by providing a personal challenge to reach the next artistic level.

We are able to provide arts instruction through our year round communicty productions, classes and camps as well as in after-school enrichment programs and private arts instruction throughout Orange County. We partner with other organizations to bring arts education back into the lives of youth in order to build confidence, creativity, and skills they can carry with them for the rest of their lives.

I am grateful for the time I was allowed to volunteer at the Arts & Learning Conservatory as an accounting intern. Gary and Deborah Wondercheck are very passionate about their students, the program, and the arts. From the beginning Gary was very flexible and accommodating and all the staff was very inviting. I had the opportunity to work Shirley Nong. They were very helpful and provided the necessary guidance and experience that allowed me to become familiar with Quickbooks and obtain my current position as an accountant. If you are looking to volunteer I would definitely recommend the Arts & Learning Conservatory. Previously, I worked for a non-profit in the after-school sector for over six years. I can tell you that you can really see the passion, purpose, and drive that is put into this program from everyone. I would recommend this program to anyone looking to volunteer. Come see all the great thing happening at the Arts & Learning Conservatory. Thank you!
