The Armory Center for the Arts is a private, non-profit organization supported by grants, individual donations, and memberships. The Armory Center for the Arts has been a leader in the field of art education since it began in 1947 as the education department of the Pasadena Art Museum. Classes were led by artists whose teaching concepts grew out of the museum's exhibitions of modern art.

In 1989, the name was changed to Armory Center for the Arts when the organization moved into the renovated National Guard Armory in Old Pasadena. The 20,000 square foot building, divided equally into studio art workshops and a gallery, provided the space for the re-introduction of contemporary exhibitions and performances as an integral part of the Armory's programming. The unique floor plan encourages ideas to flow freely between exhibitions, classes, artists, teachers, and students.

Today, more than 60,000 children and adults participate in the Armory programs each year.
