Sierra County Arts Council is dedicated to helping young emerging artists in Sierra County. The Arts Council works to assist art students in development and enjoyment of their artistic skills. In achieving this goal, the Arts Council directs funding to the middle school to purchase art materials for use in art classes. Every middle school student has the supplies to learn enduring skills and expand their creativity for their lifetimes.
