We are proud to partner with LA-based art education company, Art To Grow On Children's Art Center, for our fine arts program. Our strategically curated curriculum includes master artist biographical studies, along with in depth exploration of distinctive artistic techniques. It also highlights art from a Jewish lens, diving into holidays, Jewish symbolism and shining a bright light on Israeli and Jewish artists.
The mission of Art To Grow On is to enhance student opportunities to become optimal thinkers and creative human beings. This is done using an integrated curriculum with grade-specific content that promotes growth mindset, global citizenry, innovation and the ability to contribute to their community and world at large. The purpose of this strategic partnership is to offer a high-level of interdisciplinary synergy across our VBSDS curriculum.
Art To Grow On collaborates closely with the VBSDS Curriculum Coordinator and grade level teaching teams (and specialists) to integrate art instruction into both general and Judaic studies. This integrated art curriculum is a vital part of our J-STEAM (Judaism, Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) program, which focuses on the importance of authentically infusing all disciplines into daily learning.
