Afterschool Site Directors may request CCE programming

Our online catalog hosts a description of instructional units that CCE and our Teaching Artists offer. These include offerings in theater, dance, music, media arts, and visual arts. Each instructional unit is centered around introducing students to the art discipline and is aligned with the National Core Arts Standards, and may also incorporate aspects of social emotional learning, such as self-awareness, collaboration, and empathy.

Many of CCE’s instructional units have an academic component in order to expand upon learning students are getting during the school day. CADRE is made possible with support from Prime Time Palm Beach County, Inc., which receives significant funding for its overall operations from the Children’s Services Council of Palm Beach County.

CADRE Spotlight
Emotional Impressionism
by Jean Howard, Teaching Artist

“In the past several years I have found a way to involve children personally into the big picture of art processes from the history of the piece, to the
culture, the artist’s life story and their impact on society. In its simplified form this is a way for children to relate to fine art and to connect with their emotions and experiences. The children learn about Van Gogh’s life and are able to be photographed as Van Gogh sitting in his room in Arles. They use watercolor pencils, paint, draw and pastels to design their rendition of Van Gogh’s works with great success.”
