Throughout the 2021-22 school year, the Education and Outreach Program’s undergraduate interns of UC Santa Barbara’s Art, Design, and Architecture Museum have worked in partnership with Goleta Union School District Expanded Learning to lead a weekly after-school program that introduces art and art history to children at an early age. The interns have collaborated to construct various lesson plans to teach kindergarten students about key concepts in art history. In conjunction with the educational material taught each week, every lesson ends with a unique art project to reinforce the concepts learned. It is the goal of the Education and Outreach Program to foster early interests and skills in art, creativity, visual analysis, geography, history, and encourage community building through art. The culmination of this community art and art history education program is presented in Kinder Art Exhibit: UCSB x IV ELEMENTARY, which features artworks the students have been creating with us throughout the year.
