The Arts Alliance brings both student art and music alive in MSAD #51. Started in 2002 by a group of ten community members and two MSAD #51 music teachers, MSAD #51’s Arts Alliance is committed to celebrating and exploring the arts for the students of North Yarmouth and Cumberland. The group works to raise awareness of the arts both in the classroom and the community. In addition to working in conjunction with faculty, the Arts Alliance provides monthly MSAD #51 student art and music event information, and encourages community involvement through volunteer opportunities in the schools. The group provides two scholarships every year, one for art and one for music, to graduating seniors who will further their studies in the arts after graduation. The goal of the Arts Alliance is to be self-sustaining financially. The main source of funding for Arts Alliance activities is their student artwork and school year event calendar sold at the start of each school year. All Arts Alliance activities are presented to students and the community at no cost. To find out more about the Arts Alliance, or to get involved, please visit www.msad51arts.org.
