About the Program

Bridging the Arts or BtheArts is a unique collaboration between the University of California, Berkeley and local K-12 school communities including teachers, students and parents. UCB arts majors develop age-appropriate and culturally-relevant arts curricula while gaining practical teaching experience. BtheArts provides new opportunities in sequential arts learning for K-12 students and encourages parent participation through a variety of resources for continued arts learning at home.

Bridging the Arts expands access to the arts while providing K-12 students with the tools for critical investigation and analysis. These critical thinking strategies help prepare students to succeed both in and beyond the school environment.
