Project will provide a program of arts instruction and a demonstration
venue for teachers from neighboring districts and the public to observe
classroom arts education and extra-curricular production of a musical.
Artist/coordinator Deborah Padrick will provide to participants a classroom
lesson art manual and an opportunity to visit classroom art sessions.
Participants will receive a mentoring visit at their site by the artist-in-residence
when they teach lessons in the classroom. An introduction and orientation
to the project provided teachers with hands-on experiences with process
and tools. The State of California has a new set of
Visual and Performing Arts Framework and Arts Standards for classroom
education. The orientation meeting will include discussion of the new
Arts Standards, curriculum ideas and adaptations.
A second, mid-year, participants' meeting will evaluate the Demonstration
Project for the California Arts Council, share ideas and create an art
show for Public Schools Week.
Finally, an opportunity will be available for administrators of participating
and neighboring school districts to discuss the new Visual and Performing
Arts Framework and Arts Standards.
