The AD&A Museum’s Education & Outreach Program (EOP) is proud to partner with Isla Vista Youth Projects (IVYP). The EOP leads an after-school program that teaches key concepts about global art history. The program is taught by undergraduate art history students, and supervised by a graduate student in art history. The goal is to foster an early interest in art, promote creativity, and inspire global citizenship from an early age. Lesson plans, which foster skill-building in geography, visual analysis, art history, history, and global studies, are supplemented with creative crafts that reinforce the day’s lesson.
In addition to the ongoing program of activties, IVYP and the Education & Outreach Program are proud to present the 2020 Kinder Art Exhibit. This online exhibition presents crafts made by kindergarteners at IV Elementary during the 2019-2020 academic year. The inspiration for these projects emerged from art history lessons taught by UCSB undergraduate museum interns.
