The Arts-World Project takes DSOTA's vision global!
Destin School of the Arts will begin an exciting new program in September called The Arts-World Project! DSOTA will be working with the administrators and teachers at Jacob's Ladder Preschool to connect their four and five year old students (65 in total!) with fellow preschool students all the way in Hermanus, South Africa for a school year long arts and cultural exchange project!
Throughout this school year, the students at Jacob's Ladder here in Destin, FL will be learning about the customs, arts, and culture of the students attending the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley Preschool in Hermanus, South Africa! As they have chosen to participate in this program as well, the teachers and children at the Hemel-en-Aarde Preschool in South Africa will be learning about those same aspects of customs, arts, and culture that are apart the life of the students here in Destin, Florida, USA! Destin School of the Arts will be leading instruction weekly for Jacob's Ladder Preschool's VPK and K5 classrooms, and will also be providing supplies, original curriculum, and weekly lesson plans to the preschool teachers in South Africa!
Our goal for all of the children participating in the DSOTA's Arts-World Project is to instill them how each one of us in this great big world are more similar to one another than we realize while celebrating the aspects of our arts, culture, and daily life that make us unique and beautiful ! This promises to be a year of discovery, joy, understanding, inspiration, and bonding for all of these wonderful students and teachers alike!
