I'm Kenney Mencher. I'm an artist who left a tenured professorship in 2016 to pursue making art full time. This blog is about art, art history, with a emphasis on human rights. I make homoerotic art featuring bears, otters & other gay wildlife.

Introducing the California Arts Education Data Project
All students in California deserve to have access to high quality arts education that will provide them with important skills they need to succeed in today's competitive workforce. But up until now, we lacked the tools to show us where (and how) arts education is offered across the state.

You can review school-level, district, county and statewide data on middle and high school arts education course offerings and enrollment. MORE >>
