Leola M. Havard Early Education School Pre-K Art Classes – Josefa Vaughan and associate teaching artists meet with 50 pre-K students once a week working on skills based on California Content Standards for Pre-K arts focusing on artistic perception and creative expression related to geometric shapes, line, color, pattern recognition and tactile practice with fine arts materials. Students learn new vocabulary and are encouraged to explain what they are seeing and doing.
Leola M. Havard Early Education School and Off-site Studio Apprenticeships – One-on-one and small group studio apprenticeship sessions for students (of any age who also do not need to be enrolled at Burnett) with artists from the Bayview Hunters Point community and beyond.
