Milwaukee, WI – Students at Academy of Accelerated Learning will celebrate the work they created in an artist residency sponsored by Artists Working in Education, Inc. (A.W.E.) on Wednesday, April 9th. This is the fifth year Writer/Performer Dasha Kelly and Visual Artist Valaria Tatera have partnered to work with Teacher Jim Gross’ third grade class through the A.W.E. School Studio program.
The artists developed their activities around science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM), merging science with writing and the visual arts through poems, stories, installations, painting, sculpture, performance art and video documentation. On any given day, students could be seen using their bodies to model molecules, creating folk art from recycled materials, or exploring the mathematics of sculpture.
“This project will benefit students by showing pride in attending an International Baccalaureate (IB) school, as well as all the wonderful cultures represented here,” Teacher Jim Gross said.
The students will celebrate their work on Wednesday, April 9th from 1:00 p.m. – 2:15 p.m. in their classroom at the Academy of Accelerated Learning, 3727 S 78th St, Milwaukee, WI 53220.
This project was made possible by the Mary L. Nohl Fund of the Greater Milwaukee Foundation.
