School Ready with Art

School Ready with Art helps prepare preschool students for elementary school by integrating art into the preschool curriculum so young students can access the irreplaceable benefits of an arts education.

Program Description

School Ready with Art is an outreach program designed to integrate the arts into core preschool curriculum. Through the program, Arts+ faculty bring arts-integrated lessons into preschool classrooms serving students with demonstrated educational and, often, financial need. Additionally, participating teachers receive professional development taught by Arts+ faculty on techniques and strategies to integrate the arts into their lesson plans. The program currently works in four Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools with Bright Beginnings Pre-Kindergarten programs.
