About

The Weekly After School Art Clubs

We encourage global awareness and recognize our diversity by celebrating our similarities. In doing so, we learn to appreciate that which makes us Americans.

 

We recognize the need for more critical thinkers and we use art to engage students in high level activities that challenge, motivate, and encourage students to think as they creatively synthesize to problem solve.

 

We believe that character building is essential to the development of young minds. We engage in community-related activities to avert confrontational situations, reduce bullying, stress, promote cooperative learning, and nurture students to become productive and perceptive young members of our society.

 

We also display works, award high achievers, and inspire young leaders.

Our Focus in The After School Art Club

Cultural Awareness and Discovery:

“Cultures among us”

 

Video and discussion time involves an introduction to a ‘culture among us’. In an effort to promote an understanding of each highlighted culture a wonderful interactive video from a series is presented in fun and fast-paced educational segments that celebrate the culture. Students will learn facts on the geography, history, language, arts and the heritage of various Americans within our communities. It is important to note that we try to do this not in a way which fosters a tourist mentality, focusing on differences and running the risk of making the culture seem exotic and thus even strange – instead we embrace similarities and celebrate the beauty and uniqueness that we can learn from and embrace to help make our “Salad bowl” of American culture more real to us.

Sometimes schools focus on the unique aspects of another country’s traditions, and fail to show the kids that people in that country use technology, have professional jobs, and have similarities between their lives and ours. They may not make the connection that people of that heritage can also be American.

 

We have selected the following American sub-cultures for this club:

 

Irish Americans,Hispanic Americans, Caribbean Americans, Pacific Island Americans, Asian Americans,  African Americans, Arab Americans, Native Americans, Indian Americans, and Jewish Americans.
