Project Details

Contributed by: Katherine Broadwater

City Kids Art Program

The project goal is to bring urban youth from Baltimore City to the Towson University setting where they will have the opportunity to explore the arts in a teaching and learning partnership with art education students. This program has an overarching goal to break down stereotypes and to encourage the urban youth to gain a vision for continuing their education. The impact of the program is significant. Considerable research has been done which shows that the program has assisted in student teaching and learning. Attendance is excellent. Attitudes and assumptions have changed on the part of the children and especially the university students. Many children express aspirations for finishing high school and attending college.
