PORT TOWNSEND — In 2002, more than 700 high school, junior high and elementary school students came from around the state for intensive workshops in visual arts, drama, music and dance at Centrum’s home at Fort Worden State Park.
Funding from the state Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction underwrote half of the $500 cost per student for the workshops, according to Keven Elliff, Centrum’s marketing director.
Charging the full price would put the experience beyond some students’ means, he said.
“We have always been committed to helping talented students, no matter what their income level,” Elliff said. “We don’t want our programs to become inaccessible.”
