Our Vision

Our Mission


Art & Music Center in Rio Vista is a Nonprofit 501c3 Organization. Established in 2013 and formerly known as Fine Arts School In The Pines located in Placerville CA, has revised it's name to incorporate the Music Program we now offer in addition to the Arts.

The Center was founded to foster and enrich the artistic and musical development in people of all ages, children, teens, adults and seniors. The Center is inspired by the natural beauty of it’s surroundings, from the winding Delta Waterways, to the friendly and quaint towns that encompass it. The Centers purpose, and with great passion and ambition, is to manifest the creative aspirations and abilities within ourselves and our community both young and old. Our professional instructors fully embrace the value by reinforcing the social, emotional and intellectual development of its students...

With assistance from grants, donations and increasing attendance, our goal is to eventually provide FREE lessons for all socioeconomically disadvantage children (and adults). In addition, these funds provide supplies for both music & art, instrument rentals, events, recitals, collaborative workshops and help to produce new programs and increase our offerings.

"The Arts and Music is a gift that gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything" - Plato.
