CreateSLO County Arts Education Alliance

Led by ARTS Obispo in alliance with the San Luis Obispo County Office of Education, CreateSLO County Arts Education Alliance is a network of our community that believes the arts are core to an education. Our purpose is to advocate for arts education for all students in every school community in San Luis Obispo County.  We envision a core curriculum that provides sequential, standards-aligned arts education for every student.

We believe: the arts--dance, drama, music, and visual--promote Creativity, Critical Thinking, Communication, and Collaboration, the pillars of the Common Core Standards, and essential 21st century skills. A great body of scientific evidence proves that the Arts awaken the full potential of students, impart team building skills, and help break down barriers. All San Luis Obispo County students deserve to have access to quality arts education to provide them with the ability they need to succeed in college or career and life. 

We invite you and/or your organization or company to show your support for arts learning. To join our advocacy network, send an email to [email protected] with the subject “Join createSLO Arts Ed Alliance" and visit our Facebook Page to stay up to date on activities.
