West Valley Arts Council Receives West Valley Mavericks Foundation Grant
West Valley, AZ (June 2, 2020) – West Valley Arts Council (WVAC) are the proud recipients of the West Valley Mavericks Foundation Grant. This grant will go directly towards supporting our educational performance series, Arts Advantage!
Through Arts Advantage, 4th grade students learn from, and interact with, professional artists during live performances in dance, music, theater, and opera – all specifically designed for young audiences. Students have experienced educational and diverse performances such as Native American hoop dancing, multi-lingual opera, African drumming, and Flamenco.
Our focus on working with Title One schools is to ensure that underserved youth have adequate access to quality arts education and experiences. Our amazing donors like West Valley Mavericks Foundation make it possible for us to reach and serve those that normally would not be able to afford it.
“West Valley Mavericks President Jason Khan congratulates West Valley Arts Council for the fine work they do in the community. This was a very competitive year and West Valley Arts Council should take this grant as our endorsement of their important work and its impact on the community. We appreciate all of the hard-working non-profit organizations and we are glad to assist during this especially challenging time.” Khan continues.
With current gathering restrictions, our Arts Advantage program will be offered to schools online via recorded video and Zoom Live performances. Students will be able to experience and interact with even more art forms, cultural traditions, languages, and science than ever before!
