Preschool children enrolled in LVCC at St. Luke's (Bethlehem) enjoy time with their artist-in-residence, Mr. Bill. This morning, Mr. Bill engaged students in a storytelling exercise.
The artist-in-residence program is designed to bring art and creativity to every area of the classroom. Through the exploration of art and music, children develop language and literacy skills, as well as math, science and social skills.
This project is made possible through the Arts in Education Partnership of the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency. It is funded by the citizens of Pennsylvania through annual legislative appropriation, and administered locally by the Allentown Art Museum. The Pennsylvania Council on the Arts is supported by the National Endowment for the Arts.
Matching funds for this are provided through a grant from the LEGO Children's Fund.
