“Everybody can be great … because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”  --MLK

Enrichment Opportunity!

Art & Soul is offering a Virtual Paint Day (like a Paint Night) for Families on Saturday, 2/13, at 11:00 AM with Teacher Katiria. (see attached flyer).

Art & Soul is offering in-person dance classes OUTSIDE in our patio, in Windsor, if anyone is interested.  We have a few spaces open.  707-575-6858 (see attached flyer).  We also have Virtual Music Lessons and Art Classes


VCS Instrument Lending

Your child can reduce anxiety, improve cognitive ability, and flex their creativity by learning and playing a musical instrument. And guess what? We now have instruments available to loan out!

Currently, dozens of flutes and bass flutes are prepped and ready to go. If you’re willing to spend a couple bucks on your own reeds or mouthpieces, we have clarinets and an array of brass instruments as well.

We’re incredibly lucky to be living in a time when music lessons can still happen even when meeting in person isn’t always safe or possible. The Kushins Family of Art and Soul Music Studio has generously offered private lessons at a discount for VCS students or you choose self-teaching from YouTube videos. Either way, with motivation, seriousness and dedication you can learn a new instrument!

Email Emma at to reserve an instrument BEFORE you come in. You'll then be able to pick it up from the VCS office.

Food Assistance

Families needing food assistance can find a distribution site by a number of avenues provided by Redwood Empire Food Bank and SoCo Emergency.

The most complete resource is for those with internet access. The search tool allows you to enter an address and find food distributions available by day & time as well as food distribution type with descriptions of each.

For those without internet access, the TEXT/COMIDA tool is a great resource for food available today.


Thank you, Matt and Teachers, for turning the old office into an art gallery. I love walking in and seeing all of the student art work! Parents, if you are on campus, you are welcome to take a peek!

Rebecca did an awesome PE exercise with the middle schoolers the other day…having them run through the house touching door knobs and outside touching cars.  It was brilliant and got the kids heartbeat going.  Please do this more often!

To Stephanie for starting hands on science with the middle schoolers!!  Hands-on science for all ages is so important. I support this whenever it is possible! Thank you!
