Registration is now open for the youth Arts & Civic Engagement Program for youth every Saturday, 2-6pm for youth 10-18 at starting this September, 2014. The program features fine arts, movement, writing, life skills, homework help, field trips and visiting artists.
The ACE’s program emerged from several years of funding provided by the Tucson Pima Arts Council “PLACE” initiative. This funding helped create multi-level fine arts programming, curriculum, assessment and tracking that builds on state and federal standards in the fine arts and workforce readiness. The ACE program is demonstrating that the tools, techniques and practice of making works of art is critical to an in depth civic engagement experience.
The ACE's program includes homework help, creative writing, dance, visual arts, financial literacy, workforce readiness, filed trips, know your rights and service projects. Each week includes looking at, taking about, creating and reflecting on our creative process.
