Live and in-person experience with the arts are the heart of a life long journey of art practice and enjoyment!
Gluck fellows perform and present workshops in the community around Riverside, California at schools, libraries, and museums.
When you are ready for face-to-face Gluck visitors, we are ready; Gluck fellows also present live on video conferencing or live streaming on Facebook if that serves your setting better.
We will follow your site, the CDC, and UCR's guidelines for in-person presentations, and when applicable will practice social distancing and mask wearing during in-person live presentations.
If you would like to have a Gluck fellow visit your site or school - on video conferencing or in-person - please see Site Resources for information on requesting fellows and becoming a Gluck site.
