Our Founders


Community Canvas, Inc. (CCI) has been created by third generation Nevada County natives with over 30 years combined teaching experience. With a strong community connection, it is their belief that exposure to art should be easy and accessible to everyone.

Our founders advocate the importance of the arts in the development of our youth and encourages the use of art within all curriculums, while supporting a variety of art educational programs.

They are very passionate about sharing the love of art with children and seniors. Through events, grants, and fundraisers, CCI is able to provide valuable contributions to this sector of our community in the way of standards based enrichment classes within the schools, After School Art, discounted/free classes for teachers, assemblies featuring local artists, Family Art Nights, Senior Community events, and more.
