Alisal Center for the Fine Arts


The Alisal Center for the Fine Arts is a creative hub for artists and advocates alike. Connecting, teaching and strengthening our community,we cultivate youth leaders committed to cultural affirmation and community transformation.

The Big Idea

The Alisal Center for Fine Arts is a community hub for artists, teachers and creators that serves not just to offer creative instruction, but to connect and strengthen the community. This year they would like to expand their folkloric dance program, Alma y TradiciĆ³n, providing classes beyond their standard East Salinas options. These classes offer instruction on traditional, aesthetic and historic Mexican folkloric dancing. Funds from MCGives! would allow them to employ professional dance instructors for their classes. The nonprofit also provides a masterclass where students can see professionals perform and learn from them in person.

ACFA has had a tremendous influence on my development as an indivisual, student and leader my guitar class taught me the importance of patience and giving back to the community through my involvement with ACFA and all the wonderful activities ACFA has provided for me.
