Art Is A Window

   Opening Up New Possibilities

  1. “Without imagination, you live in a small room with the windows closed.

  2. Imagination opens the windows and shows us landscapes,

  3. horizons that we would not otherwise perceive…”

  4. — Dr. Maxine Greene

Get down-to-earth.

Have pie-in-the-sky ideas.

Peer through the looking glass.

Tell a new story.

Find your place.

Art Is A Window.

Art Is... is an arts education program that uses works of art to provide an inexhaustible resource for exploration, reflection and understanding.  The program actively engages students, supports learning across the curriculum, and builds critical thinking skills through “hands-on” art making, reflection and research.

Art Is... will bring works of art (music, dance, theater and visual art, with a focus on multicultural work) to all Rooftop students and develop partnerships between teachers, teaching artists, arts organizations and art parents to develop integrated, interdisciplinary curriculum that will support learning for all students.

This arts education website is created by Rooftop Alternative K-8 School

to assist teachers, parents and students in their classroom study.
