WHAT IS ARTCORE?
ArtCore is a three year middle school journey of discovering one’s self, one’s place in the community, and one’s role in the world through the creative integration of studio habits of mind across student learning.
With purposeful alignment to national and state academic and arts standards, ArtCore modules foster engaging instruction and pave the way for a new education paradigm that empowers all learners with voice and choice and expands the definition of student success.
ArtCore is adaptable and dynamic, providing multiple entry points for learners, both students and educator, to unleash the creative and innovative possibilities in each learning community.
Building from the foundation of values, beliefs, and vision unique to each school, ArtCore serves as a thought partner and creative catalyst. ArtCore meets a school where they are and thoughtfully co-creates a vision for sustainable change.
Rooted in research showing how creatively engaged learning promotes academic growth, ArtCore addresses school wide goals for learning and improvement.
As one 6th grade participant states, in ArtCore, “there are no boundaries, no limits, trust yourself.”
What could happen if we all asked this much of ourselves in our own work?
