Arts in the Schools
Young Creative Minds
Opening Reception: Friday, March 1 at 5:00 p.m.

Gualala Arts Center
The Mendocino / Sonoma "Arts in the Schools" program represents over 600 students from Fort Ross, Kashia, Horicon, Arena, Point Arena High School, Home Study, Pacific Community Charter School and Manchester schools.
Each year, Gualala Arts features artwork created through-out the year in these local elementary and high schools. The students work is always fun to see and very creative. This is just one more way that Gualala Arts supports and promotes public interest and participation in the arts.
The March art show of student works will feature the creativity of grades pre-school through 12th grade.
Each of our local schools approach art in their own unique way. Often it depends on the classroom teacher's talents and how they find ways to blend a creative project into the curriculum.
There are schools here on the coast that fortunately still have an art program where students spend part of each week in an art room. This is a huge accomplishment considering budget cuts, even though research shows that art and creativity help children succeed in the core curriculum subjects.
Thankfully we live in a supportive community full of artists, some of whom even contribute a percentage of their sales to art in our schools. (Thank you!)
We invite everyone to come by and view the student art exhibit. There are always surprises and unexpected variations of traditional techniques. Come enjoy the visual treats.
The Gualala Arts Center, located at 46501 Old State Highway in Gualala, CA,
is open weekdays 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and weekends from noon to 4:00 p.m.
