LAUSD Under One Sky Art and Writing Exhibition
New for 2015 the LAUSD Arts Branch has teamed up again with the International Fund for Animal Welfare and Adopt the Arts Foundation to launch the Under One Sky: Why the Animals of Los Angeles Matter education program in conjunction with an art and essay initiative. All participating classrooms will receive certificates for each student and 4 classrooms will be drawn at random to receive $250 donations to go to their Arts program. This program is available to all Los Angeles Unified School District students in grades K-8!
Under One Sky explains the importance of biodiversity and how animals play vital roles in the web of life that sustains us all. Even in big cities such as Los Angeles, animals matter and continue to live alongside human development.
This program will not only help build your students’ knowledge and critical thinking about their communities, it also promotes the LAUSD strategy of bringing arts into core instruction through multi-disciplinary lessons and activities aligned with common core and national standards in language arts, science and social studies.
