Be Art Smart - Partnership with Milwaukee Public Schools
AACT teaching artists present in-school classes for third, fourth and fifth grade classrooms from O.W. Holmes, Lloyd Barbee Montessori and Elm Creative Arts School. The schools present shows in December and May, open to the public at no charge.
Monday classes at O.W. Holmes School are led by Dr. Wallace Cheatham and G. Dwight Hamilton.
The Art Camp sessions on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at Lloyd Barbee Montessori are led by AACT teaching artist Azeeza Islam with Lincoln Russell, music teacher.
The Thursday sessions at Elm Creative Arts School are conducted by Dr. Wallace Cheatham, G. Dwight Hamilton and Azeeza Islam.
AACT’s programming at these schools is also supported by the MPS Partnership for the Arts and Humanities, the Greater Milwaukee Foundation-High Point Fund, and the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin and the National Endowment for the Arts.
Snow/Weather Emergencies: AACT follows the same policy as Milwaukee Public Schools: When MPS is closed, AACT is also closed.
