Art In Action

art in action


River Glen’s new art program, Art In Action (http://www.artinaction.org), is in full swing.  This parent volunteer-run program brings an exciting new art curriculum to our school.  It is opening our students’ eyes to the world of great art and stimulating their creative thinking.  The program also integrates visual art with standards-based language arts, math, science, and social studies.

River Glen student artwork will be displayed throughout the year at the Willow Glen branch of the San Jose Library and in the River Glen School Library.

Art in Action is a nonprofit organization dedicated since 1982 to fostering the educational development and creativity of children through innovative visual arts programs and communities.  The Art in Action Program provides an engaging, hands-on curriculum that teaches art history, art appreciation, and art techniques.  The rich and diverse Art in Action lessons encourage students to observe more closely, consider more carefully, and express themselves with confidence.

Art in Action makes teaching art fun and easy with recipe-style curriculum online and in book form, training workshops, lesson-specific art materials and year-round support.  The curriculum meets National and California academic standards and uses online multimedia technology to take visual art education to entirely new levels.  The program serves more than 26,000 students in more than 100 schools.

This program is funded by HABLA, River Glen’s parent organization, via fundraising and direct donations.
