In-School Arts Integrated Curriculum

The Community Center’s professional teaching artists will come to your classroom and guide students through art-based projects tailored to your curriculum. Adaptable for all grade levels.

Becoming an Artist | 1st-3rd grade | (6) 1 hour  sessions | virtual or in-person In 6 – 1 hour  sessions, students will learn how to use lines to create movement; make patterns to emphasize textures; understand the relationship between color and emotions; and transform unlikely materials into a culminating art piece that utilizes all four learned themes. Teaching artists will use games and curriculum integration such as math and language comprehension to solidify understanding. Students will learn new vocabulary to create, verbalize and analyze the material and their own artistic ideas while collaborating in conversations.
