Young Audiences has partnered with the Baltimore City school district as well as with local artists and organizations to introduce a TV show: Arts & Learning Kids! This show premiered on Baltimore City Public Schools’ Channel 77 last month and brand new 30-minute episodes launch every week for all elementary grade bands—all of which support Baltimore City Public Schools’ Wit & Wisdom literacy and Eureka Math curricula. The shows are available online to allow greater access after each episode airs.
Arts & Learning Kids will have your children up and moving, laughing, and learning! The brand new educational TV show from Young Audiences uses the arts—like beatboxing, puppetry, tap dancing, singing, and more—to teach math and literacy skills at three different grade levels: PreK/K, 1/2, and 3-5. Check it out on City Schools TV Channel 77 (find the schedule at here) or watch now at yamd.org/kids.
Young Audiences has also been delivering Arts & Learning Snacks to the 18 meal sites around Baltimore. Young Audiences has partnered with groups like FutureMakers to create easy-to-use art kits that inspire and encourage creativity at home and make them available to 9,000 Baltimore families. Like Arts & Learning Kids, Snacks not only addresses the digital divide but ensures that the academic content students have access to also nurtures their personal and creative development.
Arts & Learning Snacks put arts materials directly into the hands of students—no Internet required! Pick up yours at select City Schools meal sites on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10am-1pm.
