Public School Arts Project Valley View Elementary

Hollywood, California

As the arts programs in the Los Angeles Unified School District began getting cut, the CICA launched an experiment to pepper money at a small school to see what happens. Valley View Elementary School has 250 students K-6, 11 teachers and an amazing even mix of Hispanic, Asian, Caucasian and African-American students, as well as an exceedingly high 14 percent special needs children. With this money, the school has created an after-school all-free music program that has 80 percent of the students attending, a teaching garden, an ever-growing student-produced mural, and much more.
