Arts In The Community Projects
These workshops require an extended timeframe in order to be achieved.
Project SOS (Save our School) - is your school challenged by gang crime, low achievement, or an
environment not conducive to learning? This radical project involves the student body, school officials,
and the surrounding community. Students will be engaged in utilizing their social capital to promote
change within their schools. This project involves community organizing via proposals, letters to city
government, and the creation of an SOS action plan.
Project Shelter-(Exhibition Component)-Students will be engaged in writing projects related to the
overwhelming issue of homelessness. A component of this project involves students actively volunteering
at local shelters throughout the city. Students will be able to utilize activism via critical essays and creative
works, in response to this compelling issue.
Project Martin- (Exhibition Component)-Students will be engaged with a modern day Civil Rights
movement. This project will allow students to develop their own speeches about civil rights utilizing Martin
Luther King's policy of non-violence. Students will create a Civil Rights gallery complete with artistic and
written works. (This is a good project to do during Black History Month).
Take A Stand- Students create tailor made artistic projects that assist community members and
organizations with special needs and requests. (Example, community murals for property
beautification, letter writing, fundraising exhibitions and performances, etc)
Parent Projects- Students create artistic projects that involve the whole family (involves
participation of family members in workshop classes). Examples: family art gallery exhibitions,
oral history projects, documentaries, visual biography projects.
