On Tuesday, January 27th, ESAA parents are invited to our Winter Arts Program at 2:00 PM in the gym. At ESAA, our goal is to integrate the arts into all our learning, and this year’s Winter Arts Program will celebrate that process with student performances demonstrating the way we learn through the performing and visual arts. Each grade level will give performances of material they created in their project-based learning (PBL) units for this trimester, including forces and motion, and winter celebrations in world cultures. Also in the gym, a student art gallery will show how we explore the same subjects through the visual arts.
We believe that the arts are not just subjects or skills to learn, but a way of learning that we can bring to everything we study. Art, music, dance, and drama teachers work with classroom teachers to create lessons that let students explore class material in a deeper and more personal way. From connecting Native American culture and storytelling, to finding inspiration for dance and kinetic sculpture in Newton’s Laws of Motion, the arts can bring new dimensions to any subject we study.
Come see what that looks like on January 27th!
