Arts & Literacy

Arts & Literacy is a customizable year-long residency that utilizes a school’s reading and language arts curriculum as the basis for artist-led workshops, reinforcing reading and literacy goals through the arts.

Teaching artists connect learning in the arts with students’ literacy lessons in the classroom, reinforcing student understanding of grade-level specific reading and ELA standards, increasing literacy growth, and emphasizing SEL competencies.
