The Objective

Increase the use of the arts to improve education for low-income children and children of color.

The Issue

Research confirms that understanding, learning, and appreciating the arts are vital components of every young person’s education and development. Without meaningful opportunities for progressive skill-building in and through the arts across age and grade levels, Marin’s students will not be fully prepared for healthy and productive participation in their adult lives and in their communities. With reduced public funding for arts education, arts education programs have been fragmented and limited in reaching low-income students and students of color in Marin.

Our Approach

Together with the Marin County Office of Education and community-based arts organizations, who have been working successfully within schools, we will support integration of the arts within the school curriculum and instruction in discrete arts disciplines.
