ROBINSON CULTURAL ARTS PROGRAM
Students call it fun, we call it Cultural Arts. Every student, every year, participates in a 10 lesson, performing arts residency,
unique to each grade, K-5. Developed by Robinson teachers and performing arts artists, cultural arts enhances classroom learning, strengthens students’ creative and artistic skills, builds confidence, and broadens student exposure to a diverse array of experiences through the performing arts.
Every residency consists of a high quality curriculum that meets the stringent California Visual and Performing Arts Standards, and reinforces classroom learning by tying to a unit of study or theme within each grade’s curriculum.
