Education at A+P is designed as an outreach program to meet teachers where they are in terms of curriculum and familiarity with contemporary art. A+P invites local schools, students and teachers to experience, analyze and engage with exhibitions on view in A+P’s exhibition space in Leimert Park, Los Angeles. Teachers receive self-guided teacher resource guides with grade appropriate student handouts (grades K-12) that seamlessly integrate into their curriculum and incorporate the California State Contents Standards (VAPA and ELA).
So how do K-12 visits actually work?
Teachers schedule their visit through A+P by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. A+P then provides scheduled schools located within 7 miles radius of A+P’s campus with paid bus transportation. Field trip reservations are always required with a minimum of 3 weeks notice. Upon arrival to A+P’s exhibition space, school groups are greeted by A+P’s staff and receive clipboards with student handouts (grades K-12). Teachers receive a corresponding teacher resource guide that includes the tools teachers need to carry out select activities for the tour as well as follow up lessons in the classroom.
Can I bring my college/university or adult class?
A+P welcomes students and educators of all ages to explore and learn about exhibitions on view. Please note that the maximum size of a visiting group is 60 students. Groups of 30 or less are highly encouraged. E-mail email@example.com to schedule your visit.
