ACHF Arts Education
Individual participants will experience art; Understand art; create art; and connect art to other learning, specifically a STEM topic. Written evaluations filled out by teachers and artists; site visits by COMPAS staff to observe the teaching artist and youth; and follow-up meetings among staff, artists, and teachers. 2: Metro and non-metro schools and students who have not experienced learning from and creating art with a professional artist will get that opportunity. At least 25% of schools will not have worked with a teaching artist in the last five years, 40% of students will be in greater Minnesota, and 70% of students will not have worked with a teaching artist at school.
Teachers reported students experienced art, increased understanding of art, created art and developed context to connect the art to their lives. 2: 38% of schools (three) had not worked with an artist in the last five years. 57% of students in Greater Minnesota. Greater than 70% of students hadn’t worked with a TA at school.
1,700 students in eight public schools will engage in creative, in-depth projects that integrate the arts and a science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM) topic. Art forms and STEM topics were chosen to best meet each school’s learning goals.
