Project Based Learning

The SCA has built a series of innovative educational programs for K-12th students that expose young people to important arts & cultural opportunities through project-based learning. Schools participate free of charge and we even offer transportation funding to bus students to the SCA.

Students benefit from our Project Based Learning programs by:

 

  • learning more deeply and retaining more of what they learn through project based, hands-on programs;
  • improving critical soft skills needed for employment success including collaboration, problem-solving, empathy, self-guidedn learning, and teamwork;
  • working with professional artists/creatives;
  • experiencing film, music, design, and visual art which enables them to compete with peers from better equipped school districts (when applying for jobs, internships, and college).

Arts | In

For the past five years the SCA has been working with the Saugatuck Schools on a very real problem facing our young people: being adequately prepared for jobs in today’s innovation economy. Project based learning (PBL) is our solution to the problem.

Growing Young Artists

Growing Young Artists (GYA) is a project based learning program that uses art and creativity to deliver key skills to Pre-K through 8th grade migrant students.

Children’s Film Festival

We host our annual Children’s Film Festival in March. Through our partnership with Mountainfilm on Tour, K-12th graders view award-winning documentaries.
