ACHF Arts Education
Youth and educators gain new skills and understanding about peace, reconciliation and social justice issues through the arts. Students: pre- and post- surveys of attitude and knowledge and rubric-based self-evaluation of artifacts. Educators and artists: reflective protocol process to plan, monitor and evaluate the project.
Youth and educators gained new skills in art, poetry, and music composition as they learned about peace, reconciliation, and social justice in a historical and contemporary context. Students were given a pre and post-test and participated in an art lead discussion of the art work they created. Educators were asked to participate in a reflective protocol process, as well as respond to a written assessment of the project. The artists participated in a reflective protocol process led by the project coordinator at the conclusion of the project. Informal evaluation included engaging with parents at the EcoArts Fest to gauge their response to the project and conversations with teachers, artists, and administration.
