At the heart of Napa Valley’s vibrant cultural scene, the Arts Council Napa Valley (ACNV) thrives as a nurturing platform for both established and budding talent. Recognizing the importance of fostering the arts from a young age, the ACNV has initiated the Student of the Month (SOM) awards, an annual venture that aims to spotlight gifted students in the realm of visual and performing arts. Every month, the council opens its doors to nominations, culminating in a grand scholarship ceremony that celebrates the potential and passion of young artists.

The year 2023 has been a remarkable one for the ACNV, as they received a record-breaking number of nominations, over 160, spanning from college to elementary level students. The nominations, filled with a diverse array of creativity, were facilitated by the county’s visual and performing arts teachers. After meticulous deliberations, ACNV will honor more than 20 students as the Student of the Year Scholarship recipients. These young artists will be celebrated at the Napa Valley Community College Performing Arts Center on Wednesday, June 7th, with scholarships totaling over $12,000.

To witness the creative journey of these remarkable students, you are invited to visit the ACNV’s Facebook page, where you can browse through the impressive gallery of the SOMs’ work. Each piece stands as a testament to the individual’s artistic exploration and the nurturing guidance of their mentors.

Finally, the ACNV encourages your active participation in supporting these promising talents. Your generous donations can help fuel this year’s Student of the Year ceremony and contribute towards nurturing the artists of tomorrow.

After all, the beauty of art lies not only in its creation but also in its shared appreciation.
