HOW WE'RE DIFFERENT

  • QUALITY INSTRUCTION

    CLARA Classroom delivers standards-aligned, sequential arts learning in dance, music, and theatre. Each course is designed by experienced educators and professional artists. Classes are customized to meet the unique needs of three distinct grade levels (TK-2, 3-6, 7-12) and include resources for teachers facilitating the content in a variety of settings.

  • ENGAGING LESSONS

    Each course includes opportunities for students to interact with each other, their teachers, and CLARA artists in safe and secure forums where they can ask questions, demonstrate new skills, challenge their imaginations, and discover the benefits of the arts as they uncover their artistic passions, talents, and creative potential.

  • SAFE AND SUPPORTIVE COMMUNITY

    Students can share their progress as they complete each course by posting photos, videos, and messages on their safe and secure classroom community forum. The CLARA teaching artists will respond to the posts and provide direct feedback and encouragement to the students.

  • SOCIAL EMOTIONAL LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES

    All courses include tools and resources for students to rebuild a sense of community, belonging, and togetherness that will support them as local schools begin their slow transition out of the pandemic.

  • VERSATILITY

    CLARA Classroom can be facilitated by teachers or executed independently by students in a variety of learning environments; in school, after school, and remotely. No prior arts experience is required.

  • LIVE INTERACTION

    After completing each course module, schools have the opportunity to receive a live, virtual class with the teaching artist where students can meet the instructor, learn additional content, and engage in a live Q&A.

  • CULTURALLY RESPONSIVE CONTENT

    Students will have the opportunity to celebrate and learn about diverse cultures through art forms native to their history.

  • EQUITABLE ACCESS

    Close the equity gap and ensure universal access to high-quality arts instruction for as little as $0.99 per child.
