Arts Now Napa Summit Resources

Friday, September 9, 2016

Napa has a unique story to tell. In 2013, Arts Council Napa Valley (ACNV) created the ACNV Education Alliance to assess the state of arts education in Napa County. This public-private alliance after producing an arts education assessment commissioned the drafting of a Napa Arts Education Master Plan, which presents a comprehensive framework for the development of TK-12 sequential, standards-based arts education curriculum. Since then, NVUSD has hired a full-time Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) Coordinator, and new curriculum and programs are being developed to fulfill the promise of the assessment and the Arts Education Master Plan.



The California Alliance for Arts Education gratefully acknowledges support for this program from the Stuart Foundation and the Adobe Foundation.
