The West Valley Arts (WVA) has long been a champion for arts education throughout the West Valley, a mission that is increasingly important as arts programs are pulled from the public school system. The council provides arts education and initiatives that directly serve more than 40,000 children annually.
WVA Arts Education Programs include:
Eight standards-based performances reaching over 4,000 4th grade students annually.
WVA continues to build relationships with and offer services to all school districts in the West Valley.
This school-to-work apprenticeship program results in the creation and permanent placement of a professional piece of public art. Students are exposed to a variety of career opportunities, receive college credits and are placed in an environment that cultivates interest in furthering their arts education.
Arts Education Partnership:
Partnerships with local school districts that create systemic change by providing professional development support to West Valley teachers.
