Mendocino County Alliance for Arts Education


To neglect the contribution of the arts in education, either through inadequate time, resources or poorly trained teachers, is to deny children access to one of the most stunning aspects of their culture and one of the most potent means for developing their minds.

—Elliot Eisner, educator and advocate for the arts
