Learning in and through the arts develops the essential knowledge, skills, and creative capacities all students need to succeed in school, work, and life. In a time of shrinking budgets and shifting priorities, schools can make and keep the arts strong in their schools, while still addressing TEKS, and preparing students for statewide assessments by offering GCAC workshops. Schools around San Antonio have been taking advantage of the Guadalupe workshops’ exciting artists, engaging lessons, and workshop affordability. Each workshop comes with its own TEKS-driven curriculum, professional artist, and all materials. Schools provide a space and students, and the Guadalupe does all the rest!
