SWCC Student Performance & Exhibit - Monday & Tuesday Classes

Grandville Avenue Arts & Humanities (GAAH) and Southwest Community Campus (SWCC) collaborate annually to provide a visual and performing arts learning experience for 5th,and 6th grade students at SWCC. The classes take place at the Cook Arts Center which is less than a quarter of a mile away from SWCC. This year, Laura Armenta (dance) and Kim VandenBerg (art) have provided art and dance classes to the students which are built upon content standards in the student’s core curriculum and relate to community, so that the SWCC teachers may extend the experience back into the classroom.

Students walk from SWCC to the Cook Arts Center to attend the classes for a period of 16 weeks. Throughout this multi-week session the students are exposed to various types of art, their understanding of the arts will improve, and they are be encouraged to creatively express themselves. Each grade level’s 16-week session culminates in an art exhibit and celebration that takes place at the Cook Arts Center. Students display their artwork with an artist statement and biography, and perform dance pieces they have learned.
