Walter J. & Betty C. Zable Foundation Performing Arts & Fine Arts Center Set to Open on TERI Campus of Life in San Marcos

TR Robertson – The third major build project completed on the San Marcos TERI Campus of Life is set for a Ribbon Cutting and Open House on Sunday, May 5th as the Walter J. & Betty C. Zable Foundation Performing Arts & Fine Arts Center is nearing completion. The TERI Campus of Life is designed to provide services to individuals with disabilities using an array of 20 programs to assist, teach, educate and empower individuals with special needs. The completion of the Performing Arts & Fine Arts Center is one step closer to the continued addition of a variety of buildings for TERI which is planned to begin construction in the Fall of 2025. This $50 million dollar construction of the TERI Campus of Life will include the Founders Center & Bornemann Child Development, Dr. Bronner’s Country Day School & The Learning Academy, the TERI Tech Center, The Aquatics Center, The Verna Harrah Culinary Institute and the Health & Wellness Center. All of these facilities will assist in TERI’s mission of providing Education for Special Needs, Residential Lifetime Housing, Arts & Enrichment Programs, Family Training & Special Services, Vocational Training & Internships, and Sustainable Social Enterprises. TERI (Training, Education and Resource Institute) Founder & CEO Cheryl Kilmer said, in the 2023 Impact Report, “The Campus of Life is the key to unlocking TERI’s vision – to build a place where the entire community can learn, create, and thrive side-by-side.”

Final construction, inside touch-ups and furnishing, and outdoor landscaping was underway for the two building Zable Foundation Performing Arts & Fine Arts Center, comprising 22,000 sq. ft. of space. The Arts Center consists of a Fine Arts Center that features a spacious Vocational Kitchen and a Student Commons area that looks out on the Twin Oaks Terrace, a Ceramics Studio with a large kiln, three large arts studios and a number of smaller rooms for personalized instruction, crafts studios, a textile room and a nurse’s station. The Performing Arts Center starts with the Old Oak Grove Terrace that leads into music and performing arts classrooms, a dressing room, a make-up room, a green room, a small lobby area with a kitchen and break room and the Center is highlighted by a large 200 seat-auditorium with an equally sizable stage. The stage will be used for adaptive performing arts education and a shared resource for community events and entertainment. Dan Dreesen, General Contractor for Johnson and Jennings (J&J) Construction said, “This has been the (most purposeful) job of my career” and expressed his excitement at the completion of the Performing Arts & Fine Arts Center and the beginning of the next set of facilities for TERI. Work was ongoing at The Center to complete the stage, outside accessibility and final touches for the building, heading toward the May 5th Open House.
