SCAA is proud to announce its Color Pop collaboration with Powder Springs Elementary School in Powder Springs, Ga.
Color Pop is an envisioned ART coloring book project for children in hospitals and at other facilities. These coloring books will feature original artwork created by students from two local schools, SCAA artists (professional as well as amateur), and other members of the community to communicate interest, good will and to raise the spirits of the recipients. The Color Pop project, by its nature, involves many different groups and individuals to succeed as it is truly a synthesis of creativity by a number of local artists, local schools and students, hospitals and other facilities along with the community.
Powder Springs Elementary School uniquely represents art education up to grade 5. The Elementary School was awarded the designation of the Georgia Department of Education’s Creative School Arts Integration School of Excellence Award, as well as CCSD Arts Integration Certification. At this school, art integration strategies transform teaching and learning when students are encouraged to think in complex ways and apply the knowledge and skills they have acquired to solve problems. All teachers – including general education, specialists, special education, ESOL, gifted, and special-needs Pre-K – receive arts-integration professional learning that consists of training in visual arts, theater, dance/movement, music, and digital arts. Arts integration allows these educators to teach to the whole child, thereby meeting students’ individual learning needs.
