Bringing Arts Education Where It Is Needed Most


In The Classroom “I continually strive to advance the learning process for my students by helping them develop creative skills that can be applied both inside, and outside of the classroom. A recent example of this occurred in my 2nd grade class at Sunnyside Elementary School, when a young boy named Wesley crumpled up a dinosaur drawing that he disliked, and set it aside on the table. Bryon, his fellow classmate, looked at the crumpled, upright paper and proclaimed, “The dinosaur is walking!” I used this opportunity to help my students reevaluate the crumpled paper as a work of art. The following week the Young Artist, Principals’ Center Collaborative, 2010 students worked on creating pop-up animal designs, a lesson plan that evolved from the outcome of the crumbled paper and one that they thoroughly enjoyed. The Imagine Bus Project (TIBP) reaches children and youth in Wesley’s ‘walking dinosaur’ is just one of many experiences underserved communities to provide sustained, positive, and that illustrate how young people can develop innovative creative outlets for personal expression through the visual thinking through the arts. I think it also demonstrates how the arts, which empowers our students to explore their potential, arts impact a child’s creativity and curiosity, which inspires develop critical thinking, and build self-esteem. me to delve deeper into my own art practice and motivates me to apply the lessons that I have learned from my students. We bring Teaching Artists to after school programs, juvenile I am consistently amazed at how my students direct the justice centers, and youth organizations to engage over 2,000 Bay Area students a year in creative learning. creative process in new and unexpected directions.”
