This is National Arts Education week is a week that is very close to the heart of our guest co-host Maria Luera in her position with any "Any given Child Sarasota.". "Any Given Child" is dedicated to ""Changing Young Lives through the Arts"
Maria says, "Locally we are going into most of our elementary schools and training teachers to become "strategy movers", educators committed to practicing arts integrated strategies in their classroom as an approach to their teaching and modeling these strategies in other classrooms as a means to refine their teaching and serve as role models of best practices."
Also this week, Arts organizations are reaching out to students in special ways. Sarasota Ballet is planning a program for all 3rd graders. Next month they will invite them to watch a special performance "An introduction to the world of Ballet".
