She knew from her ring the 2010-2011 fiscal education year. and experience that students do better academically and socially when they are fully engaged through an arts-infused curriculum. So when Ms. Crum-Glenn became principal in Warrensville Heights, she continued her relationship with Young Audiences and sought out performances and residencies for her students there. Partnering with Warrensville Heights Library and advertising firm Marcus Thomas, her school participated in the Big Read, funded by the NEA. Teachers and teaching artists found new ways to bring the novel To Kill a Mockingbird to life. Parents and community members volunteered to read and discuss the book with the children who dramatized chapters and created a permanent mural depicting major themes. Now Ms. Crum-Glenn is launching an after-school program with Young Audiences to offer workshops in digital technology. She hopes to meet the students “where they are” and provide a positive experience to build pride and self-esteem, while keeping them out of mischief and focused on their education. “I want our students to take ownership of their learning. There is a whole world waiting for them, and teaching artists can help them explore career options.” Whether for an extended residency or a one-time performance, Ms. Crum-Glenn likes having artists in her classrooms. “Each year, some connection with Young Audiences is a must. They have been a blessing to every school where I have been a leader.”

Art is Education provides standards-based, integrated arts experiences for children in Cleveland Metropolitan School District K-8 schools through a partnership with more than thirty arts, cultural, philanthropic, and educational institutions. Art is Education schools have increased access to local arts resources, and educators are empowered to incorporate arts learning across the curriculum. Through a whole-school model of learning in and through the arts, Art is Education addresses important issues of academic achievement and school climate.

Young Audiences invested $449,807 in area arts organizations and artists who partnered with teachers and administrators to create and implement a wholeschool, arts-integrated curriculum during the 2010-2011 academic year.

Parents as Arts Partners

Parents joined their children for public art projects at four Art is Education Schools in the Cleveland Metropolitan School District. With the guidance of professional artists, they designed permanent installations to instill pride in their school and offer inspiration for learning. A. J. Rickoff School unveiled “New Beginnings,” a ceramic tile mural created with George Woideck, a Young Audiences roster artist; Melissa Daubert with Art House Inc. led her team at Wade Park School in inscribing “I Can, I Will, I Am” on the walls; parents and students at Cleveland School of the Arts (Lower Campus) adorned their building with “Banners of Inspiration” created with Young Audiences teaching artist Wendy Mahon; and Hector Castellanos of Broadway School of Music & Art worked with children and their parents at Fullerton School to paint a mural titled “Our Community” on an interior wall. The Parents as Arts Partners initiative promotes arts-integrated learning by encouraging parents, caregivers, and other adult role models to become actively engaged in creative pursuits with their children.

Cedric McEachron Principal, Fullerton K-8 School Cedric McEachron first encountered Young Audiences as a teacher at Cleveland’s H. Barbara Booker Elementary School. Cartoonist Jim Gill and musician Dave Young led a five-week residency at his school. Students built musical scores to accompany their own cartoon stories, thus integrating language arts with collaborative artistic endeavors. His relationship with Young Audiences continued as assistant principal at Marion Sterling and now as principal of Fullerton K-8, a Cleveland Metropolitan School District Art is Education school. Having played the clarinet and saxophone, Principal McEachron understands the power and benefits of arts education, and while his teachers showed some skepticism for the Art is Education model, their comfort level grew with familiarity. “Students find so many different ways to express themselves and learn. Arts learning is fun, it increases attendance, improves test results, and builds school culture.” Parents want a good education for their children and become more engaged though Art is Education. According to Mr. McEachron, the program’s final performance drew the largest turnout ever seen. Fullerton families have come to understand that with Young Audiences “something big is going to happen every time.”

Arts for Learning Arts For Learning offers educators artist residencies and curriculum units to integrate literacy and fine arts skills. Designed for K-8 classroom teachers with little or no arts experience or background, Arts for Learning lessons comprise a research-based, educational program of flexible, teacher-led instructional units. Related artist residencies make use of the arts to improve students’ knowledge and skills of literacy, learning, and life.

2 1,000

Counties Students and their Teachers

The Arts for Learning program design was guided by The National Research Council’s report entitled How People Learn: Brain, Mind, Experience and School, which introduces a framework developed by cognitive scientist Dr. John Bransford of the University of Washington (Seattle). Lessons combine carefully selected arts strategies with important literacy objectives in reading and writing. All units have been field-tested and researched for their effectiveness, showing reliable gains in student achievement.

Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital

21 Performances 15 Small Group Projects

With support from The Jennifer Ferchill Foundation, Young Audiences’ professional teaching artists provided interactive arts programs for children receiving care at University Hospital’s Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital. Some performances were offered in Rainbow’s main lobby and televised for broadcast to patient rooms; others were presented in the new emergency department lobby. In addition, small group activities and bedside visits were offered for children receiving treatment. Participating artists included sculptor Kristen Cliffel, theater artist Robin Pease, storyteller Susan Weber, musicians Bob Frank, Bob Kloos and Hal Walker, and illustrator Jim Gill.

Cleveland Clinic Mural In 2011, medical director Dr. Tom Abelson sought Young Audiences’ assistance to beautify the stairwells at The Cleveland Clinic’s Beachwood facility and promote health and wellness by encouraging employees and guests to walk rather than ride the elevator. Students from Beachwood Middle School, John Hay High School, Shaker Heights High School, Berea High School, and Young Audiences ArtWorks created stunning multi-panel murals with painter Augusto Bordelois to adorn the stairwells.

With support from The Lake-Geauga Fund of The Cleveland Foundation, middle school students in Chardon and Painesville took part in a residency combining literacy, social studies, and theater with actor Jimmie Woody that explored the national 9/11 tragedy and the crash of United Airlines Flight 93 in Shanksville, PA. Students learned interviewing and storytelling skills as well as camera techniques to document their conversations with community members, including Ohio Senator Tim Grendell (pictured), Ken Quinn, a former NYC firefighter, and Debbie Borza, the mother of a Flight 93 passenger. They synthesized this material to write an oral history, then honed their performance skills to create presentations at the Geauga Lyric Theatre Guild and Heritage Middle School for hundreds of school, family, and community members.

Kristen Cliffel

Sixth Grade Social Studies Teacher, Chardon Middle School

YANEO Teaching Artist

Tim Bowens and Young Audiences united over a desire to enhance his social studies curricula centered on the events of September 11, 2001. Each year since 2005, Mr. Bowens’ 6th grade students at Chardon Middle School have visited the Flight 93 crash site and memorial near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, but he wanted to connect the students’ experiences with their community. Working with Young Audiences teaching artist Jimmie Woody and staff member Kristan Rothman in 2011, Mr. Bowens’ class researched, wrote, and performed a staged reading based on some 30 community members’ personal recollections of September 11, 2001 and specifically the crash of Flight 93. This year, his class is creating a mural with teaching artist Augusto Bordelois that will be permanently installed in the school’s front entrance hall where future students and others in the community might contemplate the historic events of that day. Mr. Bowens was pleased to observe Augusto working with his students on their sketches for the mural. “I witnessed a real ‘teaching moment’ as Augusto pushed my class to focus on the big ideas, not the details. That is exactly what we want our students to do. For these children, their ideas of September 11 are based solely on what they have been told – what we teach them. It’s the big concepts that we that we want them to remember and understand about these historical events.”

Kristen Cliffel earned her BFA in ceramics and drawing from the Cleveland Institute of Art and has been working as a professional artist for more than 20 years. She is also a passionate teacher and a much-requested artist on Young Audiences’ roster. Her most fulfilling assignment is working with children receiving care at University Hospital’s Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital. She reserves some of her nicest materials for these children facing dire medical challenges. Together they create unique wood and ceramic sculptures or jewel-encrusted picture frames to be treasured forever. Occasionally, parents join in and discover a new means of communication at a time when words are often inadequate. Other times, a mother or father may create something special for their hospitalized infant. “Art making can be a selfish, solitary pursuit,’’ says Kristen. “My work with Young Audiences connects me with the community. As a mother, a teacher, and an artist, I treasure the moments when I am working with these special young artists; they transform me more than I can express.” This program, now in its sixth year, is an on-going partnership between Young Audiences and Rainbow Babies and Children’s Child Life Department and is generously funded by The Jennifer Ferchill Foundation.
