California Arts Council

State of California




The state’s Arts-in-Corrections two-year pilot program is made possible with funding from the Division of Rehabilitative programs at CDCR and administered by the California Arts Council. Both CDCR and the California Arts Council have a long history of providing arts programs in correctional facilities.
