Calaveras CountyArts Education Fundraiser
The Calaveras County Arts Council has a mission to support arts in our public schools. In 2019 the fundraising event Ride & Walk 4 Art raised nearly $6,000; all of the money was earmarked for arts in our public schools.
Sadly, last year the Arts Council canceled Ride & Walk 4 Art due to the Covid-19 emergency. Happily, most participants said, “keep our registration money!”
But the Arts Council has fallen far short of it’s goal of matching last year’s contributions. And this upcoming 2021 school year, students will need the arts more than ever as they return to school and try to navigate this new world we live in.
RideandWalk4Art helps pay for many things: art supplies for classes, visiting artists, school theater projects, art days at elementary schools.
But most importantly, this fundraiser helps students make sense of their lives as they learn critical real world skills like creative thinking, resilience, problem solving, and project management. Studies show that children with access to the arts fare better in school and life.
