Creative Schools

The arts spark vibrant learning opportunities!
In KID smART Creative Schools, learning comes alive through the arts.

KID smART Creative Schools support the highly effective process of student learning through a variety of art forms. Two mutually reinforcing programs form the core of our Creative Schools:

Collaborative Artist Residencies in which professional teaching artists collaborate throughout the school year with a team of teachers to deliver arts-integrated lessons.

Arts Experience in Schools (AXIS), a program where teachers participate in year-round professional development to reinforce their work with residency artists.

KID smART Creative Schools also receive an art supply/field trip budget and full-faculty professional development sessions.

During the 2016–2017 school year in New Orleans, KID smART worked with:
