ARTS REACH TO SCHOOLS
temporarily on hiatus until after we can return to in-class instruction
Arts Reach To Schools (ARTS) Program provides standards based art experiences to the students of Tuolumne County. Tuolumne County Schools and TCA have developed a partnership that works enthusiastically to bring high quality visual, literary and performing arts instruction to your schools and classrooms. TCA highlights local artists as well as keeping you informed on touring groups and events. New artists and events will be posted within an online catalog as they become available. You might already be a participant, but if you are not currently a part of this program, please contact TCA
A.I.S is a California Arts Council matching grant program designed to support high quality artists in residency in schools for use with class-time, or after school programs. For the past 4 years, a representative of TCA has written and received this grant and has placed a total of 6 artists and at least ten guest artists in 5 local schools. These residencies bring the arts to school age children and empower classroom teachers to teach the arts, while they employ local artists. The residencies last at least 12 weeks and many times much longer. TCA’s Educational Director serves as the Coordinator of the A.I.S Grant at the
local level. PLEASE get in touch with us:
ARTISTS IN SCHOOLS
The Celebration of the Arts in Education Annual Student Exhibit, is a kindergarten through 12th grade student art show. Two age groups, k through 6th and 7th through 12th grade students submit art with the help of their teachers. The art of the 7th-12th graders is judged and ribbons are awarded. Winners of the Best in Show are awarded free framing for their work and are invited to have it displayed in the Tuolumne County Supervisors’ lobby for one year. YAS will be at the Tuolumne County Library During Library Hours.

YOUTH ARTS SPECTACULAR
Summer ARTS Camp is a week long, arts experience for children age 7 to 12 years old. Chaired by Betsy Spring, Arts Specialist at Jamestown School and Cynthia Restivo, Theater specialist. Students, ages 13 to 22, are camp counselors and are themselves students of the arts. This is a fee-based camp and is staffed with teaching artists from all arts disciplines. The week culminates in a live student performance, art show, and picnic for all.
Students can explore their creative self-expression as they develop an appreciation of the arts.
