School Arts are a key component of our organization. In collaboration with Inyo County Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Lisa Fontana, we are proud to offer visual and performing art enrichment programs to all Inyo County students. This partnership combines the education of our children with the talents and resources of our community’s artists and performers. Our isolated location makes fieldtrips to major museums, concerts, and performances very challenging. Many of our programs, like the Art Docent and Brummitt-Taylor programs, instead bring these experiences into the classroom. And others, like Poetry Out Loud and Community Reads, send them out into the greater community and world. Our programs offer standards-based curriculum, so students don’t just learn art appreciation, but also the language, techniques, motivation, and discipline to become successful and confident artists and creative members of society.

Several of our programs rely on the support of volunteers. Family, community members, and artists from all disciplines are invited to get involved.
