Reinvigorating Arts Education
Humboldt County Schools are rich in Visual and Performing Arts endeavors from events to education: arts specialists, artists in residence, teaching artists and general teachers integrating arts. The Visual and Performing Arts consist of Dance, Digital Media, Music, Theatre and Visual Arts. The 21st Century Learning Skills of the 4 C’s: Creativity, Communication, Collaboration, and Critical Thinking are embedded in the very nature of participating in the arts. Beyond the research of improved brain function and academic success, the arts are intrinsic to human nature. Whether as a participant, an educator or an enthusiastic supporter, we continue to strive to bring arts to every student in Humboldt County.
