Arts Council Napa Valley and Napa Valley Education Foundation collaboratively support, sustain and advocate for arts education in Napa County. As partners in the ACNV Education Alliance, we believe the arts engage and connect students with each other, their schools and their community and are integral to teaching and learning 21st century skills. Through partnering with schools and the community, we work with other local advocates and funders to ensure equitable access to a culturally-relevant arts education for all students TK-12.
