MPS is teaming up with Arts @ Large, Milwaukee Repertory Theater, and the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music to offer dance, theater, music, and visual arts adventures for every student this summer.
Arts @ Large will provide an arts-integrated summer school program for students in K5–grade 8 by using a collaborative teaching model with classroom teachers that aligns with grade-appropriate units. The K5–grade 6 students will be engaged through the arts with a STEAM-focused model in which they will explore elements of earth and life sciences. Students in grades 7 and 8, through a variety of art forms, will explore the theme of social justice with a connection to the fiftieth anniversary of the fair housing marches. Each grade will receive 50 minutes of arts-integrated instruction, Mondays through Thursdays, for the duration of summer school.
Dates and locations for Arts @ Large to be announced
Milwaukee Repertory Theater will provide arts-integrated curriculum during the summer months in partnership with Milwaukee Public Schools Summer Academy. A teaching artist will visit classrooms at each site for one hour each day during the dates listed below. Activities will focus on delivering age-appropriate reading objectives through theater.
