Art Project Grant
ACHF Arts Education
Our goal is to broaden the arts curriculum offered in the public schools, providing instruction in all mediums of the art from educated, professional artists that students don't have access to during the summer months and that homeschooled students rarely have access to. We hope that students will gain a sense of new knowledge and possibilities through art. We aim to not only develop their artistic skills such as painting and drawing, but to further develop other curriculums in correlation to the arts. For example, a lesson on textiles and or basket weaving has an aim of course, of creating a basket, but also future work in math and learning about ancient cultures. In addition to cultivating artistic skills and hand-eye coordination, we hope to cultivate a sense of art appreciation in youth.Our teachers will implement the use of rubric to see if the child has learned the technique" being offered. The teacher provides the mechanical technique and fosters an environment where the child's individual spirit is free to express and develop itself. Setting up a rubric will help see visible signs of attempting each step. At the end of the program we will also ask parents to complete surveys grading each class, the teachers, the technique taught and implemented and to rate their student's advancement and skill level. We will ask the students themselves to rate the classes, teachers and projects to gain insight on what classes we should be teaching at the center. We will survey the teachers for suggestions on future classes to add to the curriculum. Visitors to the gallery will be asked to tell us their impression of the show at Meet the Artist reception and during the following week when the students work is on display."
