The Arts Committee
Westlake’s parent Arts Committee is dedicated to supporting the visual and performing arts at Westlake Elementary School. We are proud that Westlake Elementary School is the recipient of the California Department of Education's 2016 Exemplary Art Education Program Award.
The Arts Committee celebrates more than 24 years of collaboration between parents and faculty collaborating together to ensure a well-rounded program of arts is available to our students.
Westlake Elementary includes arts education as recognized by the California State Visual and Performing Arts Standards, as part of the comprehensive core curriculum. The Arts Committee strives to augment the district's arts program to include K-2 music and K-5 dance instruction.

How you can get involved:
The Arts Committee meets one Monday a month and we discuss upcoming Arts events as well as to have a platform within which parents and teachers can exchange ideas about visual, performing, music arts at school.
