Last year ArtiCulture was awarded an MRAC Arts Learning grant to bring visual arts programming to seven local Minneapolis public schools over the 2014-2015 school year. With this grant, we've been able to lead 5-week classes throughout the school year at each of the following schools: Dowling, Seward, Hale, Bancroft, Northrup, Lake Nokomis Keewaydin, and Lake Nokomis Wenonah.

 

The neighborhoods and communities where these schools reside are generally not affluent. Economic struggles in schools and academic testing have caused many to cut out programming "extras" such as the arts. While schools feel financially strained and often pressured to teach towards testing, the arts curriculum we offer is a necessity in lieu of such academic constraints. Our programming, which emphasizes the creative process over product, is designed to develop inspired learners and to encourage advanced reasoning skills by giving students creative freedom through guided exploration.

 

We invite you learn more about our work in this vein here on our website.
