Description
Over the past decade, Blackshear Elementary has overcome many of the academic challenges that typically beleaguer an east Austin Title 1 Campus by establishing critical partnerships with the community – particularly in the arts. These opportunities provide Blackshear students with fine arts enrichment – activities typically accessible to more affluent children in after school programming. Learn from Blackshear’s former principal, staff, and volunteers about how deliberate programming and project partnerships with artists and architects help restore equity.
