Our study hall proctor, art teacher, and yoga instructor (all one person) facilitated our school’s participation in an international program called “ArtLink.” We are grateful for the opportunity for the students to tap into their artistic side! Below is some background she provided, as well as some of the students’ artwork.
Creative Connections is an “international cultural education organization” which has facilitated the ArtLink program since 1996. ArtLink exchanges artwork between the USA and sixty countries on six different continents, which is produced primarily by elementary and high school students. This program allows students the opportunity to share their culture and way of life through creating and trading their artwork. The ArtLink curriculum helps students expand their world view to build both Global Competence and 21st Century Learning Skills.
