Literacy Through Art
The Literacy Through Art Program is a vital component of GSGBC’s literacy-rich culture. Through the Literacy Through Art Program, youth ages 6-16 create art that focuses on enhancing their love and understanding of reading. GSGBC respects that all youth learn in different ways and that the arts may produce greater academic growth in some youth than a formal classroom setting. GSGBC’s professional art teacher, coordinates the Literacy Through Art Program. GSGBC designs age -appropriate projects and coordinates a variety of professional guest artists who bring their area of expertise to the Club. Members learn a variety of subjects, including painting, drawing, paper making, writing, illustrating, and bookmaking.
