The Yamhill Carlton high school theatre arts and music programs are lacking in support and resources. After speaking with the YC Playmakers president, Betsy LeClair, it has been made clear that our school needs to invest in the future of the fine arts at YC. Fresh ideas and more community support are needed in order to innovate the program.
Fine arts are an essential building block in the foundation of a child’s education. With the current level of fine arts education, adolescents to YC are not receiving the best education they could be getting. However, if we start bringing in fresh, new ideas and innovating, our programs could be great again.
