Bringing art back into the classroom
"Despite mounting evidence of its role in student achievement, arts education is disappearing in the schools that need it most." - Sabrina Holcomb, Senior Writer-Editor at National Education Association
Did you know that elementary students are graduating without taking a single art class?
Boldly Creating Life Foundation brings art supplies and art facilitators back into elementary school classrooms that are lacking an art program due to budget cuts. By bringing different art modalities back into the classrooms, children will be able to express their creativity hands-on. Research has shown that students involved in the arts do better academically overall, and their self-confidence improves.
We work with art instructors and artists to train volunteers as art facilitators. We integrate with the art lesson other academic subjects according to the California Department of Education Content Standards for elementary grades so that students can learn about, through, and with the arts while implementing the Visual and Performing Arts Content Standards.
We also bring the arts to work with Senior citizens and adults going through difficult times such a grief, major illnesses, or needing help with trauma healing.
Our community is composed of individuals who are passionate about our mission to serve, help, and empower individuals through creative expression. We are thankful for our staff, volunteers, sponsors and donors who enable us to make our vision possible.
