What programming do you provide?
Jump Start with the Arts can be tailored to your needs.
We offer small group enrichment classes with master teaching artists. We understand your little ones have lots of energy, short attention spans, and want to participate. Our programs are not lectures or demonstrations. Art forms may include drama (acting out stories), music, singing, dancing, and simple visual arts. These are taught in short time blocks over multiple dates. We provide follow-on materials for extended learning with school teachers, family members, or caregivers.
We also offer performances by world-class artists for school assemblies. Culturally varied, these programs help round out a child's perspective of the world and models acceptance and understanding of diversity.
BRING JUMP START WITH THE ARTS TO YOUR EARLY LEARNERS
Carpe Diem Arts is proud to be the recipient of an NEA Challenge America grant to expand our Jump Start with the Arts program later this year.
Geared for pre-schoolers, this arts engagement programming provides a jump-start to healthy and joyful social and cognitive development in the early stages of learning.
We are now planning programming for the Fall, so please contact us for more information If you have a setting that would benefit from Jump Start with the Arts.
