The Arts Council’s program Arts Reach to Schools (ARTS) is renowned for bringing local artists into the classroom for experiential learning in the visual and performing arts. Dance, theater and literary arts, music, visual arts and multidisciplinary projects provide broad exposure to the appreciation and self-expression of the arts and their place in the academic and social fabric of education. Assembly programs by touring artists and local performers highlight the year, which also includes “Celebration of the Arts in the Schools,” a showcase of student artwork from around the County.

2004 was the inaugural year of “Summer Arts Camp”—a weeklong immersion for kids 7 to 11 working with local professional artists and teachers in exploring the visual and performing arts. We will hold this event again in summer 2009. Call 209-532-2787 for more information.
