Bringing Three Years of Arts Education to San Rafael Students

Youth in Arts is asking for $65,000 to expand a partnership they recently developed with San Rafael City Schools to provide a total of 30 weeks of arts education with a professional teaching artist (in visual arts, music, or dance) once a week for three years. 

Over the past few years, despite the challenges of the pandemic, Youth in Arts has expanded even more, with a goal of creating sustainability. The partnership emerged out of this thinking, and they created a multisource funding model that will distribute resources equitably.
