Ellison Parks and VSA Massachusetts team up to welcome

Kristine Biegel, Artist in Residence to K1-K0 Classrooms


VSA MA through their COOL school program has brought Maine Artist Kristine Biegel to Ellison Parks to work with four wonderful classrooms in a variety of Arts Integration Projects. 

The COOL model creates classrooms where students and teachers have a Creative Outlook on Learning.  Through the arts students have a variety of ways to experience academic content, express what they know, and engage in learning.  The model engages students and teachers through the arts to transform schools into inclusive communities.

For more information on programs taking place in each of the classrooms be sure to check back here!

Art is not the only thing a Visiting Artist can share…

Working as a team, sharing ideas, helping a friend… such great kindness and joy from one artist to another sharing the project and materials when one of the artists is not there at the start of class to get instructions.
