Sedona’s Artist in the Classroom Program

The city of Sedona lives up to its vision to “be a city that is animated by the arts” in a variety of ways, including its Artist in the Classroom program. Funded by the city since 1989, it provides quality arts education to students of all ages. The program pays an hourly stipend to a roster of approximately 25 local artists and funds an arts education coordinator to organize and monitor the program. Projects include dance, sculpting, creative writing, origami, drumming, mural painting, cartooning, and storytelling, just to name a few.
