The Arts Council is a partner to Westwood Elementary School located in west Tuscaloosa County in Coker. The Council contributes to the high educational standards set by the school’s staff and faculty through such programs as Spectrafest, Westwood Art Month at the Bama and the Gail Skidmore Memorial Scholarship.
