CSIHSIS Wins World Savvy Grant!
World Savvy, an organization whose mission is to educate and engage young people in community and world affairs, has just gone national with its Global Youth Media and Arts Program. World Savvy is currently building partnerships throughout the Big Apple and, thanks to our very own Clara Gagliardi, they are building a partnership with CSIHSIS. The 2008 Media and Arts Program, which will be implemented in our sophomore art classes, focuses on Immigration and Identity. Throughout the Spring, our sophomore students will create new works of art based on the global theme and will then showcase their work in the culminating Festival in June, 2008.
Through this program Ms. Gagliardi will be supported with professional development, our students will have the opportunity to work with World Savvy educators and other guests who will visit their art classes, and will deepen their knowledge about immigration while creating their works of art. We are very excited about the rich learning opportunities our participation in Global Youth Media and Arts Program provides and about having our students participate in this program.
