VIRTUAL & SOCIALLY
We know being an educator during the 2020-21 school year is incredibly difficult, which is why our School-based Programs team is going the extra distance to offer support to teachers and campuses. We have adapted several of our programs so that we may continue to offer schools creative learning opportunities that support community building while ensuring a safe distance apart.
Below are our current offerings. Each program comes with a small fee so please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more. Some schools may be eligible for the Community Arts Partner Funds through Austin ISD’s Creative Learning Initiative. This includes all schools listed here.
Don’t see a program that’s quite right for your campus or worried about how you might pay for a program? Contact us! We love to brainstorm about creative solutions.
The Wish Tree Project
A Wishing Tree is a tree chosen to hold wishes and offerings. For this project, school community members are invited to contribute written and drawn representations of their wishes for the future that are then hung to a tree on the school campus.
- Two 30-minute asynchronous, grade-level specific, pre-recorded lessons that cover the history and cross-cultural significance of wish trees. The lessons guide students through the process of representing their wishes in various artistic mediums. Lessons are available in both English and Spanish.
- All supplies, outdoor signs, and electronic/printed communication about the Wish Tree Project.
