Through a partnership of Milwaukee’s United Community Center, Latino Arts Inc. and UWM’s Peck School of the Arts, teachers are learning firsthand how the integration of the arts into other subject areas can impact students’ academic performance – and deepen cultural identity.
"The Big Idea,” a special exhibition of artworks created by third-, fourth-, sixth- and seventh-grade students at Bruce-Guadalupe Community School, was created as a part of their experiences in ALMA (Avanzando Lectura y Matematicas a través del Arte – Advancing Literacy and Math Through Art).
The exhibition is on display in the Latino Arts Gallery in the United Community Center, 1028 S. 9th St., through Aug. 30. The gallery is open to the public 9 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday-Friday, for a suggested donation of $1. A selection of the artworks also will be on display in the UWM Libraries this fall.
