Growing Young Artists : Summer Migrant Program

Partnering with Fennville and South Haven Public Schools featuring our Artist in Residence, Rubén Aguirre
July - August

Migrant farm workers and their families are integral participants in Michigan’s educational system and workforce. Approximately 1,000-1,300 migrant children live in our Allegan County communities.

Young people in summer migrant educational programs are considered “at-risk”, typically moving from school to school, state to state through the year as their parents travel to obtain temporary or seasonal work.

Growing Young Artists (GYA) is a Project Based Learning program that uses art to deliver key skills to Pre-K- 8th grade students. Our GYA instructors work hand in hand with educators in Fennville and South Haven’s summer migrant programs, creating programming to reinforce skills like literacy, language fluency, math, and science along with critical life skills like problem solving, teamwork, empathy, social etiquette and community.

Approximately 3,000 area school children participated in the Saugatuck Children's Film Festival this year, nearly triple our previous record. The Saugatuck Center for the Arts was also able to expand into the Allegan community by taking the ‘Telluride Mountainfilm on Tour’ on the road and make the films available to over 1,000 kids. 
The Saugatuck Center for the Arts (SCA) pioneered this new model that allows for kids to experience great films in their area and allow for the Children’s Film Festival to reach even more kids year after year.
A partnership with the Ottawa County Intermediate School District connected the SCA with more teachers and schools and allowed to help schools to bring their students into Saugatuck by funding their transportation. 
Foundation and business partners year after year make the program available free of charge for kids in Allegan, Ottawa, Kent, and Van Buren counties. Without their support, this program would not be possible.
