ARTSBRIDGE: UCSB STUDENT OUTREACH PROJECTS IN S.B. CLASSROOMS

Wednesday, November 17, 1999 - 16:00
Santa Barbara, CA

Editors: See attached list for students from your area who wish to publicize their award

National College Week is Nov. 15-19

University of California, Santa Barbara visual and performing art students received scholarships of up to $1,000 each for project ideas designed to teach children about dance, music, story telling and photography. Among the 39 ArtsBridge winning proposals submitted were: creating imaginary animals inspired by National Geographic articles and Dr. Seuss's stories; exploring fables through traditional music, imaginative storytelling and movement improvisation; learning the music and dance of the Middle East; and experiencing the world of a drama student.

"Both educators and legislators in the state of California have a new awareness of the crucial need for arts education in our public schools, beginning at kindergarten," said David Marshall, dean of the College of Letters & Science's Division of Humanities and Fine Arts at UCSB. "By providing scholarships that will enable UCSB students to work with teachers and students in the Santa Barbara and Goleta area schools, ArtsBridge will support the arts at every level of our educational system while encouraging collaboration between the university and the community."

ArtsBridge, an arts education and outreach program that was initially developed by the University of California, Irvine, School of the Arts, provides scholarships to qualified UCSB undergraduate and graduate students to teach art in local K-12 public schools. Providing art programs in public schools and promoting arts education in the community is part of the University of California's alliance with K-12 school districts.

National College Week is part of the U.S. Department of Education's "College Is Possible" campaign, which is aimed at alerting students and parents to the variety of post-secondary institutions and financial options that are available to young people interested in attending college.
