In June, KID smART partnered with Ashe’s Institute of Cultural Education and Junebug Productions to offer Homegrown, a training for artists to build their skill sets to work in formalized education settings, such as schools, museums, summer camps, and other cultural institutions. Participants developed effective lesson plans, envisioned a safe learning environment for their students, and learned about childhood development through a cultural lens.

KID smART has an organizational commitment to racial and ethnic diversity and understands the importance of children working with adults who reflect their own cultural, ethnic, and geographic backgrounds.

A second phase of the Homegrown Teaching Artist Institute includes opportunities to connect with employers, learn about funding opportunities, and apply for paid fellowships.
