By way of background, these kids will be starting out pretty much at ground
zero for art education. Near as I can tell, they've only had a smattering
of art and it's been the "art as filler" or "pumpkins in October" stuff. The
school doesn't have an art program/curricula yet although it does have a new
principal who is very supportive and interested in getting substantive art
education in the classrooms. The school is very urban LA; has a nice
computer lab and a computer in every classroom. Overall, the community has
lots of new immigrants as well as some families who've lived there for
several generations. It's predominantly is low-income; largely Latino
although also some Pacific Islander, African-American, and white.
Any suggestions would be very welcomed! Thanks --
