Arts Day had a packed agenda and so many great highlights from meeting some key art entrepreneurs to taking a backstage tour of the production Shrek at Napa Valley College. We even got to see Shrek himself. Learning the importance of the Arts through leaders in the Arts community really showed how art truly changes people which in turn helps grow our community.
The second half of the day was just as impactful as the first half. Visiting Vine Village and learning about how their program is helping those with disabilities either live independently or enjoy a day of arts and activities was very touching. That lead to us experiencing learning through music with Marie Butler. We then became our own Arts leaders and had to present an idea to the Arts Council. Finally the day ended with a creative way of approaching a problem – by creating a persona and addressing the problem as this persona.
Eight hours flew by on Friday, Nov. 3, and we were all truly grateful for the subject matter given it was our first time coming together as a group after the fires. This is an amazing group of people and we’re proud to be part of Leadership Napa Valley.
