Arts Legacy Grant: School Residency
ACHF Arts Education
As a result of this project students will have a new awareness of themselves and an emotional reaction to their writing. They will gain skills and knowledge to write creatively and tell their story. Evaluation will occur through a verbal or written questionnaire of participants, teacher and artist, there will be a follow up meeting of the project planners as well as notes from personal observation.
Students in grades 7, 8 and 9 did tell stories in the form of plays and performed them for staff and classmates. This was a totally new experience for them and was extremely successful. More than 85% stated they enjoyed the residency and felt they learned a new art form from the artist. The questionnaire for students and staff indicated it was a positive experience. Through observation it was evident the students were learning, working in groups successfully, and enjoying the process.
