Students 4th-6th grade explore culture through participatory activities, workshops, literature, and live artist demonstrations. Select area schools are provided free student tickets for Mesa Arts Center cultural performances, complemented by pre and post-artist in residence activities. Teachers utilize arts and culture to teach diversity, tolerance and empathy through the arts.
Through the power of shared experiences students see differences as strengths, build self-awareness and see their fellow students as having emerged from a rich cultural history, full of stories and traditions expressed through music, art, dance and theater.
“The demonstration was fantastic! Everyone really enjoyed it and looks forward to future artist visits.” Administrator, Nancy Marlin, Whitman Elementary
