CREATE (Connecting Regina Educators & Artists Through Expertise) is a unique program which allows students to experience topics covered in their core curricular areas through Visual Art, Dance, Drama and Music. The program creates effective collaborations between Regina Educators and Artist for the purpose of innovative education.
All teachers in Regina Public Schools who teach Grades 3, 4, 5 or 6 are assigned a professional artist from the community. The artists work with classroom teachers providing them with exceptional on site one-on-one professional development, through the design of one-of-a-kind educational experience for their students.
The program aims to enhance the academic success of students by offering new and innovative ways to achieve increased Literacy and Numeracy. Artist Visits also enable students to form valuable relationships with a variety of professional artists from their community.
The CREATE program provides an equal opportunity for every student system wide to share a mutual experience through a variety of art forms, thus raising the global arts community of our schools.
