Providing youth arts opportunities to create positive social change.
Redwood Theatre Company is the proud home to the SOL Community Arts Program. RTC is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization providing professional productions and education programs to Sonoma County. Our mission is to make performance & visual art more accessible to the youth in our underserved communities.
Our goal is to share our passion and knowledge of visual and performing arts with the next generation.
We hope to create a designated space where students will have a feeling of belonging with an opportunity for artistic self expression. We will establish mentorships with educators in the community to create future artists and future leaders.
SOL CLUB HISTORY
