Arts & Humanites

Mission:A&H Photos2
The goal of the Arts and Humanities Committee is to expose low-income children and
families to the disciplines of modern languages, literature, philosophy, visual and performing arts. These disciplines explore, share and recreate expressions of the human experience.

Goal:
To aid students in developing their abilities to comprehend the world around them, as they create music, visual artwork and communicate with others.

Objectives:
• To introduce a variety of educational activities which help to develop children’s minds.
• To help develop self-esteem and self-confidence in children.

 

The Arts and Humanities Committee members conduct events and projects focusing on
ART and LITERACY. Sixty-one percent of low-income families do not have books in their homes for their children. The rate of children growing up with low literacy skills is a national problem. Our committee uses a series of books that focus on character education, and African American children’s literature books as their reading materials. We incorporated art by using dolls, stuff toys as visual images and doing various hands on projects such as creating their own paper dolls and bookmarkers. Fun for all.
