Creative Classrooms

Creative Classrooms Since 1997 the Creative Classrooms Visual Arts Program (CCVAP) has promoted art and literacy in inner-city Catholic elementary schools. Administered by the Patrons Program which brings educational enrichment opportunities to selected schools, CCVAP fosters learning and creativity.

It introduces students to the arts and engages them in creating, reflecting, discussing and writing about art. The program is not a mere “add-on” to classroom subjects. It is a powerful learning tool that provides students with visual, tactile, and aesthetic experiences that encourage hands-on learning and critical thinking. Consisting of five components, CCVAP includes everything from art instruction to teacher training to museum visits.
