The Arts help students succeed in all other subject areas and in life, by engaging their interest, stimulating creativity, improving critical thinking, encouraging collaboration, and building self esteem.
Each year AmadorArts brings in-depth, standards-based instruction by professional artists into all of our local elementary schools. More than 1,600 Amador County Elementary Students participate in an arts class facilitated by AmadorArts. Classes include: Kindergarten Color Wheel, 1st grade Lines, 2nd grade Doodle Art, 3rd grade Matisse-inspired Paper Collage, 4th grade Watercolor Technique, 5th grade Chalk Pastel, and 6th grade Ancient Chinese art integrated curriculum.
AmadorArts coordinates Art Classes, such as doodle art, watercolor, music, theatre, costuming, and more, at the ARC of Amador and Pine Grove Youth Conservation Camp.
AmadorArts also contracts with B Street Theater of Sacramento to bring their School Tour performances to Amador County Elementary Schools. These performances are fun, engaging theatre experiences which address subjects like science and history with a comedic twist.
