Hope Center for the Arts (HOPE) is working with Regional Center of Orange County to keep close watch on alerts from the CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) and government officials regarding health and safety protocols and precautions regarding the COVID-19/novel coronavirus.

HOPE has decided that program will be closed from March 17 to March 31, 2020. We are saddened by this closure, and what it will mean for our artists/students. The decision was made to help protect the health and safety of each of our artists/students, staff, families and community. Updates will be provided in the coming days via this website should other changes occur.
