Project Description

ArtGate: Opera Piccola Artist-in-Residence

Opera Piccola provided students with a program in drama, mural art and dance, as well as arts-based professional development for classroom teachers.  The programming was based on ArtGate’s methodology in which artists collaborate on projects based on youth-chosen themes and incorporate literacy and youth development principles into their teaching.

Manzanita SEED was the school that received this multidisciplinary program in 2005.  In 2007, Opera Piccola provided Roots International and Coliseum College Prep Academies with residencies with a mural & comic book artist as well as drama and dance artists.
