AmadorArts is committed to supporting Arts Education for all students in Amador County.
Since 1982, AmadorArts has provided scholarships, visual arts education to K-6th graders, arts ed micro grants, and adult arts education, including classes for seniors and disabled adults. In 2020, due to COVID-19, most of our art classes were forced to pause. Thanks to the Poetry Out Loud grant program, AmadorArts continues to provide visual, literary, theatre, and dance education at no cost to classrooms throughout Amador County.
As AmadorArts rebuilds from the economic crisis associated with the pandemic, we continue to collaborate with the Amador County Unified School District to implement the District Arts Education Plan and to increase awareness of and funding for equitable, sequential, rigorous, and standard-based arts education K-12. The Amador Alliance for Arts Education continues to work with direction from Youth Leadership to sustain our commitment to advocacy.
Below are the arts education programs and services currently offered by Amador County Arts Council:
- Poetry Out Loud – annual ALL ARTS CONTEST and classes
- Amador Alliance for Arts Education
- Student Directors
- Instrument Rehoming
