New Local Arts Ed Alliances

Arts Orange County, in partnership with the California Alliance for Arts Education, is continuing to build on its three years of work with the addition of five new local arts alliances this year in these districts:  Capistrano Unified, Irvine, Los Alamitos, Orange and Placentia-Yorba Linda.  Our prior alliances–still very much in action–include those serving the districts of Anaheim, Huntington Beach, Newport-Mesa, Saddleback, Santa Ana, Westminster.  A complete list of our local arts education alliance coordinators may be found here, and you are invited to contact them to become more involved in the alliance serving your community.  Here are photos from the recent inaugural breakfasts for our 10th and 11th local alliances…
