SUPPORT the ARTS in our SCHOOLS Sausalito Art Festival Foundation, Artists Teaching Art We are all about Artists Teaching Art!
Description Artists Teaching Art (ATA) is an arts education program developed by the Sausalito Art Festival Foundation (SAFF) to serve students K-12 in both public and private schools throughout Marin County. ATA along with participating schools, teachers and professional artists collaborate to create a variety of artist-in-residence projects designed to inspire children to think differently about core subjects such as, math, science, history, geography, literature and art through project based learning. The program supports deeper learning and thinking by connecting the core subject to an art form while maintaining the integrity of both the core subject and the artistic process.
Mission The Artists Teaching Art mission is to support the arts in the Marin County schools by bringing professional artists directly to the classroom; to inspire students to develop their creative habits: imagination, critical thinking, risk taking, reflection and to express their creativity in innovative ways through collaboration, cooperation and communication.
In Marin County there are 18 school districts, 72 schools with over 1000 classes. The Sausalito Art Festival Foundation's long term goal is to create and provide an artistic experience for as many students as possible in all four of the art disciplines: Visual Arts, Dance, Music and Performing Arts. With your help Artists Teaching Art will reach that goal, one class at a time!
