With the help of our visiting teaching artists, we’re giving pre-K students from low-income families hands-on experiences in the arts
Head StART in ART is a valuable program that provides pre-K students from low-income households with opportunities to explore the arts and their own creativity under the guidance and inspiration of our artists-in-residence.
Our professional visiting artists share their talents in Head Start classrooms for periods of three to six weeks, giving children of all abilities an in-depth, hands-on artistic experience they might never otherwise have. Participation in a program like this during the formative years can have a significant impact on a child’s future appreciation of and involvement in the arts and may also advance language and learning skills.
This incredibly important and successful program has been recognized by the National Endowment and the Maryland State Arts Council as a model early childhood arts education program for the Arts.
The Arts Council coordinates, administers and funds Head StART in ART, with additional grants from the Isadore and Berth Gudelsky Family Foundation, Inc. and the PNC Foundation.
