Arts
“Art is a great way of appreciating the other cultures in our society. When viewing the great art traditions of the Middle East, you may find a new respect for this ancient culture. Or when children view the historical works of their own culture, it builds pride in one's heritage. Art builds bridges of understanding,” ( Lynda Resnick). The art program is conducted by an experienced teacher using research-based curriculum. The art program at KA is aligned with state standards for Visual Arts Education and follow a four-step process: 1) Plan (discussion of styles, techniques, history and vocabulary), 2) Demonstrate (teacher demonstrates techniques; students practice), 3) Do (application of plan), 4) and Review (discussion of results and learning). These approaches align with State and National educational goals that will improve the educational outcomes and lower the dropout rate of the target population by providing intensive instruction with effective strategies that are properly scaffold to meet the individual needs of each participant.
