In-School Partnerships

"Well, you outdid yourselves again.  I appreciate your constant effort for making quality education.  You are making a positive difference." Rosemary Porter, Boston Elementary

For their innovative In-School Partnership program, the KACF Education Department oversees a partnership between a school or organization and a visiting artist.  The artist, along with KACF educators, designs and coordinates a long-or short-term art project targeted towards a focus grade or group.  The projects are thematic, and have included ceramics, carved walking sticks, basketry, and quilting.

-The KACF staff offers expertise in conducting comprehensive art and craft projects for all ages and abilities.

-Through the KACF Partnerships program, the school has access to a network of artists from which to select a program.

-Projects are planned in conjunction with Core Content goals and can also be applied to projects in science, history, or elsewhere.

-The program is open to grades k-12.

-The range and scope of partnerships is flexible and will be negotiated by the KACF staff.

-Community groups are also welcome to participate in the Partnership program.
