Get Arts in the Schools Program (GASP)

 

logogaspThe Get Arts in the Schools Program is an arts education partnership founded in 2005 by the Arts Council of Mendocino County (ACMC) and the Mendocino County Office of Education (MCOE). GASP funds artist workshops and live performances in Mendocino County schools during the school year. The goal of the program is to infuse the arts in the core curriculum and to deliver quality, educational, curriculum-based artistic experiences to K-12 students throughout Mendocino County. Artists work closely with classroom teachers and after-school coordinators to enrich the curriculum by presenting arts programs that are relevant to other core academic subjects. Teachers benefit from the partnership by exposure to current techniques and developments in the various art forms. Methods of participation include performances and hands-on workshops or extended classroom visits.
