Since 1981, The Modoc County Arts Council has supported the development of artists and programs that inspire and bring the gift of art to every person in Modoc County.  Through the arts we can connect with each other and find common ground; our children can learn to solve problems and think creatively; new people and cultures can be appreciated; we can share our culture with others.  Please join us in supporting the arts in Modoc County!

See below for some of the programs we are funding with the help of local supporters and the California Arts Council.

Missoula Children's Theatre

The National Endowment for the Arts and the Poetry Foundation present the Poetry Out Loud (POL): National Recitation Contest, in partnership with The California Arts Council and The Modoc County Arts Council.

Poetry Out Loud is a program that encourages high school students to learn about great poetry through memorization, performance, and competition. 

The 2018 Poetry Out Loud is already in full swing with three Modoc County High Schools sending one finalist each to the POL County Finals, where 2 poems each will be performed in front of an audience and judges.  The winner will go to the State Finals in Sacramento March 18th and 19th, 2018.  The winner of the State final will go to Washington D.C. for the National Contest and a chance to win $20,000!

The Arts in Education Program is made possible from funding through the Modoc Arts Council along with matching funds from the U.S. Department of Education. It provides funding for local artists to teach art to students in a school setting, stressing the importance of creative thinking, problem solving, and positive self-expression as a foundation for the overall well-being of young people.
