stARTing with ART Initiative
The stARTing with ART Initiative (formerly called smART Kid)s is a grant and participation funded program providing in-class room and on-site Art Center art education lessons and experiences for Quincy Area Students, Kindergarten – Third Grade.
Two art lessons are brought into the classroom, one in the fall semester and another in the spring semester. These lessons cover National Learning Standard for participating age groups, new vocabulary for students to improve understanding and communication of art, brief lesson and introduction to a famous artist or artistic style, materials to create their own project inspired by the lesson, and step-by-step guidance from our trained instructors to help build confidence for future creative expression.
Funding for the 2020-2021 smART Kids Art Program was provided by:
