Community Outreach

Sedona Arts Center is a nonprofit educational institution dedicated to nurturing creative discovery, learning and sharing through arts education and artistic development.


Community Outreach - Arts Immersions

Arts Immersions are designed to engage all the senses and create in the students a sense of experiencing another time, place or culture. Art Immersions were developed by the Sedona Arts Center with former City Arts Education Commissioner, Libby Caldwell and the school district. During the Arts Immersion, rather than attending their regular classes, the students participate only in art classes for three to four days. The art classes are designed to stimulate all the senses, creating a memorable and meaningful experience for the students, while simultaneously delivering a meaningful curriculum.

Sedona Arts Center has held outreach programs at Sedona Red Rock High School, the Navajo Reservation, West Sedona School, Big Park Community School and at local Senior Centers. These ventures are funded by donations, bequests, grants and fundraisers.


West Sedona Middle School Students paint a flower bed.
This spring’s Middle-School Arts Immersion, organized and produced by Sedona Arts Center’s School of the Arts, helps students express the ‘Qualities of Water’ with writing, mural, dance, painting and collage projects. The Immersion is taking place April 29–May 1, 2014 at West Sedona Middle School. The instructors are Nubia Owens (mural), Sandra Zahn (painting and collage), Kate Hawkes (writing) and Jarred Zwicky (dance).

The program is funded by the City of Sedona, Target, the Sedona Community Foundation and the Arizona Kids Tax Credit and organized by the Sedona Arts Center’s School of the Arts.

The Middle School Immersion reaches Big Park Community School as well this year, supplementing their Civil War studies, and invokes wet-plate photography and journaling. The instructors at Big Park are Brock Archer (photography) and Libby Caldwell (journaling).

Also at Red Rock High - Eight students at Sedona Red Rock High School created four murals for the Sedona Humane Society!


May 15, 2014 - Sedona Red Rock High School students stand with four murals they created for the Humane Society of Sedona.

In April, Dennis Ott and Joanie Wolter traveled to the Navajo Reservation to present a ceramics workshop for 48 high school students at Thoreau, New Mexico. This workshop was funded by the Kling Family Foundation—one of many ways in which the Foundation supports the arts!
