Fox Cultural Hall (formerly known as Arts For The Schools) has been the primary provider of arts education for schools in our service area that runs along the border of California and Nevada in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.  Due to our unique location, we serve students and schools in both states. We offer in-school visual arts classes, music classes, and host performances and workshops for regional schools.
