"Artist in Schools" is an in-depth, standard based ceramic art education program for students K-12th grade. The program strives to provide art education to underserved, low income students across the county. Under the direct instruction of professional artists students aquire valuable knowledge and skills in ceramic art for up to 12 weeks. Professional artists model for classroom teachers an interdisciplinary approach to classroom curriculum, equipping them to continue the use of ceramics throughout the school year. YoloArts has successfully administered this ceramic art program in local schools since 1994 in partnership with Yolo Schools and the California Arts Council.
