Bringing Native Art to Underserved Students

Apr 16, 2018

The Indian Arts Research Center (IARC) is proud to participate in the 21st Century Community Center grant initiative led by Santa Fe (SFPS) and Espanola (EPS) Public Schools to bring quality extended learning opportunities to afterschool programs for underserved students. The STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) activities created by the partner institutions, including SAR, are imaginative and integrative of many kinds of skills.

The IARC has helped students understand about Pueblo pottery traditions and provided opportunities for hands-on learning for students to experience the art, culture, and heritage of the Southwest. An estimated 1,000 students were reached specifically by the SAR curriculum. The student population served is diverse and consists of 95 percent who qualify for reduced or free lunch, 32 percent have limited English language proficiency, 13 percent were in special education, and 6% were homeless.
