Visual & Performing Arts

With generous financial support from the Orinda Network for Education Foundation (ONE) and the School Site Parent Clubs, Orinda students experience an integrated and enriching arts program.

Highly qualified, credentialed art and music teachers provide weekly instruction to elementary students in both performing and visual arts. Orinda Intermediate School students are offered a full complement of visual and performing arts courses through electives and art-enriched classes.

We are thankful for the commitment and support of volunteers from the Lamorinda Arts Council, the Orinda Network for Education (ONE), community members and parents who value the ongoing instruction of art education in Orinda Schools.
