Community School of the Arts Awarded Grant for CODA Program

January 23, 2017

Community School of the Arts (CSA) at Wheaton College was recently awarded a generous grant from the JCS Fund of The DuPage Foundation. This grant will sustain CSA's Community Outreach for Developing Artists (CODA) program. CODA provides free weekly musical and visual arts instruction to more than 1,700 students in 14 locations in DuPage County.

"We are so grateful for the continued generosity of the JCS Fund of The DuPage Foundation," says Paula Cisar, Director of CSA. "The CODA initiative to seek out and give artistic access to young, underexposed talents in our community who might not otherwise have the opportunity to develop their creative abilities is fueled by such generosity. We remain thankful for all the support given to this program."

Community School of the Arts at Wheaton College provides music lessons and art classes to students from 50 Chicago suburbs. For more information, visit wheaton.edu/CSA.
