The Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) are a core component of a well-rounded education. The arts are the languages we all speak, no matter our individual differences. Experiencing and creating works of art benefits students in their intellectual, personal, and social development and there is a strong relationship between learning in the arts and academic achievement.
The Alameda Education Foundation (AEF) supports the arts in many ways. Over the past 30 years, we have raised tens of thousands of dollars via fundraising to generate much-needed funds for music, art and drama in Alameda public schools. We provide grants to VAPA teachers through our Adopt A Classroom program. Our Enrichment classes and camps offer a variety of art, music, drama, and dance classes to hundreds of Alameda school children. We actively pursue a drive to collect used musical instruments for Alameda music programs. We also support assemblies that expose Alameda students to various forms of performance arts, such as the Oakland East Bay Symphony’s Young People’s Concerts.
The Alameda Education Foundation and Rhythmix Cultural Works are partnering to support arts education for Alameda public school students! AEF will be helping support the Rhythmix PAL (Performance Art and Learning) program offered by Rhythmix. PAL presents curriculum-based cultural arts assemblies to 2nd – 5th grade Alameda public school students, providing youth with a diverse cross-section of music, dance and other performance traditions performed by artists of the highest caliber.
