Budget cuts often focus on areas of art in schools nationwide but in Sedona, the city has created a program to help bring the arts back to center stage.

Nancy Lattanzi, arts and culture coordinator for the city of Sedona, is asking experienced artists to apply to be one of the next Artists in the Classroom. Art Gecko, right, works with A.Jay Bronson’s humanities class, with Daniel Valencia, Alejandra Villalobos and Brooke Hornyak, from left, at Sedona Red Rock High School to create a large wall mural with six different vignettes of the historical ages in time. Starting with Hunting & Gathering and Cave Paintings piece, the mural moves on to show the Greek and Roman era, Silk Road and trade routes [shown], the Renaissance, the Industrial Revolution and finally Modern Technology & Communication.

The series features international music, screenwriting and other specific art programs that aren’t offered at many public schools, no matter the budget. To do this, the city and schools rely on participants from the art-rich community to lend a hand.

“I feel so fortunate to work for a city that is able to help support creativity in our local schools. This program is valued by so many — the teachers, the artists and, most importantly, our students. I am looking forward to kicking off this vital program for the new school year,” Lattanzi said.
