The mission of ArtWorks is to make the arts personally meaningful to children and teachers through an experiential learning program of art-making, live or virtual performances and exhibits, and achieving understanding through inquiry and reflection.
Every year, ArtWorks brings dance, poetry, visual arts, and music to K-8 children in SFPS
Educators trained by ArtWorks were successfully able to increase the integration of arts in their curriculum
“The ArtWorks unit of study was a well-paced and unique learning process and demonstrated scaffolded learning throughout. There were well-set objectives, an enriching performance, and a culminating task that valued the student experience.”
“TA is a pro. He knows how to engage students and plan around what we are studying. He listens and takes suggestions. It is always a pleasure to work with him."
"The teaching artist was wonderful about working with my unit on contemporary cultures. They were very open and then helped me move forward in my own thinking as well."
ArtWorks promotes a set of high-quality academic standards in mathematics and English sponsored by the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers.
