Sample Programs Offered

Program Title: Home Part 1

Program Type: Arts Curriculum

Program Description:

This is part one of an on-going art lesson designed to help students take a closer look at the world around them. By recreating their homes and neighborhoods, students are learning to ask how objects, places, and design shape lives and communities. Over the course of this program, students are presented with many art-making opportunities, chances to work collaboratively and individually, and to think about their home and neighborhood. My hope is that these lessons will help foster a stronger sense of community among my students, as well as provide a fun opportunity to make art!
