Art of Learning Overview and Examples

Overview

SKEA serves the public schools in South Kona. Teachers in those schools are invited to make project requests at any time during the school year, although early requests are easier to fund and schedule.

Our artists are able to teach lessons in their art forms, or integrate the arts into something students are studying in the regular classroom curriculum.

SKEA’s role is to match up teachers and artists, provide assistance with curriculum integration, fund the artist’s classroom time, and provide specialized materials not generally available in the classroom.

  • View arts and arts-integrated units
    More than 50 unit plans taught in the past, with photos of students, teaching artists, and art projects, along with detailed lesson plans, descriptions, grade level, content area and more.

Below are general categories currently being offered by our artists. Feel free to ask about other possibilities as you think about your curriculum. You can contact the Art of Learning Director at aol@skea.org or fill out a form to request a project .
