Arts for Learning

Arts for Learning

Arts for Learning engages children with the arts by bringing teaching artists into schools and communities. We believe in the arts and their ability to transform education. We believe that when learning is enriched with the arts, students get more out of school.

Arts for Learning offers programs in various forms – including performances, hands-on workshops, and in-depth residencies. Our programs connect the arts with the curriculum to supplement learning.

Our programs occur wherever learning takes place, including afterschool programs, libraries, community centers, juvenile detention facilities, and hospitals.

Math in Your Feet

Program description

Lead by Malke Rosenfeld, math is often called “the science of patterns” and patterns are essential to the percussive dance form of clogging. In the K-2 workshops children will learn basic clogging steps and explore the process of learning and making rhythm and patterns in their feet.  In the 3-5 workshops children explore the process making rhythm and patterns in their feet, dancing congruently with a partner and transforming patterns using reflection symmetry.

Skills/concepts: beat competency, patterning, pattern units, attributes, similar/congruent.
