School Ready with Art

School Ready with Art funded by the Women's Impact Fund

WIF Logo GrantRecipient 2015

Community School of the Arts is excited for the start of School Ready with Art in the fall of 2015, a program funded by the Women’s Impact Fund. Through School Ready with Art, CSA’s early childhood arts specialist Ginny Boyd will visit area preschools that serve low-income populations—including The Learning Collaborative, Charlotte Bilingual Preschool, Lakewood Preschool, and several Title I CMS preschools—with arts-integrated lessons and professional development for teachers. In addition, all preschoolers involved in the program visit CSA’s Preschool Arts Lab each year.  The program focuses on integrating the arts into core curriculum subjects at each preschool. 

For more information on our School Ready with Art program, contact Ginny Boyd at
