The SPACE Artist-in-Residence (AIR) Program has served nearly 1800 elementary school students each year for the past two years in the South Pasadena Unified School District.
The SPACE teaching artists (Sarah Dugan, Dianna
Freas, and Sarit Swanborn) have provided a vigorous visual arts
curriculum that developed foundational art skills designed to build on
each other from year to year. The program used the elements of art as a
springboard for investigation into other subject areas such as language
arts, geometry, the sciences and social studies. Additional goals were
to inspire critical thinking and provide a creative vehicle for students
with diverse learning styles and capabilities.
Here is quick glimpse of the AIR program in
action this past year (on Youtube). Students and parents, please feel free to give us feedback and comments about your experiences.
