OUR SMART ART PROGRAM, emphasizing “Peace Though Art,” provides an art program to students who no longer have the availability is formal art instruction in their schools.
We plan to restart our program’s engagement with students during the next school year (2022 - 2023), though our efforts in conjunction with the Smart Art Museum at University of Chicago.
Through this program, classes of students are bussed to the Smart Art museum, followed by six to eight classroom sessions lead by a teaching artist, which is then followed by a second museum visit. The backpacks are distributed to the students at the of the 2nd museum visit.
