Help bring the arts to Students!
Ride & Walk 4 Art is a fun way to help Calaveras County public schools provide meaningful art instruction to our kids. You get a joyful, monitored, safe ride through beautiful Calaveras County and every dime of our profits is used to expose kids to theater, painting, drawing, literature and poetry.
Our kids need the arts so that they develop life-long creative skills that they will need to survive in our world. And this year, the need is even greater as school budgets have been slashed. Please help us keep the arts in our public schools.

Stay safe and well,
The Calaveras County Arts Council
The Calaveras County Arts Council has a mission to support arts in our public schools. Each year our fundraising event Ride & Walk 4 Art raises nearly $6,000; all of the money is earmarked to support the arts in our public schools.
Your contributions help pay for many things: art supplies for classes, visiting artists, school theater projects, art days at elementary schools.
But most importantly, your contributions help kids make sense of their lives as they learn critical real world skills like creative thinking, resilience, problem solving, and project management. Studies show that children with access to the arts fare better in school and life.
You can give the gift of art to a child. Please donate on Giving Tuesday, or any other day. We thank you for your generosity.
