Angels Gate Cultural Center brings art and culture to the community through interactive classes, gallery exhibits of both local and international artists, professional artists’ studios, art education programs in the schools, and cultural events.
Artists In Classrooms (AIC) provides quality, in-depth instruction in the visual and performing arts to students K-12 throughout the Harbor Region. Professional artists teach all AIC classes through ongoing classroom residencies.
With the inclusion of the Model Arts School (MAS) component all students receive diversified arts education in each grade. The MAS curriculum includes: first grade – multi-arts, second grade – dance, third grade – visual arts, fourth grade – music, and fifth grade – creative writing. The fifth grade option of improvisational writing blends theatre, movement & creative prose together to prepare students for their middle school writing careers.
AIC also provides Arts Exploration Field Trips (AEFT) on site at Angels Gate Cultural Center for groups of 60 students per visit. An AEFT consists of an educational tour of our galleries that is followed by an arts-making experience inspired by the art in the galleries. AIC artist-teachers lead all Arts Exploration Field Trips.
