Artists in Schools
The Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council has funded over $9,000 of arts education programming to serve over 850 elementary students. These grants directly support placing local teaching artists in the classroom.
What are kids saying?
Presley, Grade 5
“I am working on social skills and teaching skills…important to develop social skills so that you can communicate with other people. I may not be the best at art, but I sure love doing it!”
[Through the Artists in Schools program]
Kate, Grade 5
“The best part about having an artist visit the classroom is the education that comes with teaching the art projects. We get to learn so much about famous artists and their work and it’s so much fun!… We learn crowd control and we have a very talkative class, so this is proving to be a very useful skill!”
Alex, Grade 5
“Our teacher has come up with a list of themes- health and nutrition, self-portraits and still life. Ms. Nataliya, our Teaching Artist creates a lesson on that theme. It makes us feel connected as a class. I love art for this reason and I hope you see now that your money is going toward a good cause.”
