Michigan’s First K-12 Arts Organization in Residence

Via Mosaic Youth Theater of Detroit

Goal

To inspire the city's youngest minds through a new program that integrates the arts into every element of an elementary school's curriculum

To inspire the city’s youngest minds, Mosaic Youth Theatre will pilot a new program that integrates the arts into every element of an elementary school’s curriculum. In partnership with University Prep Science & Math School District and Marygrove College, Mosaic will become Michigan’s first “arts organization in residence,” moving into the new UPSM Elementary School. In return, the group’s professional artists will bring the arts to academic subjects, particularly science and math. In addition, the partnership will serve hundreds of students in grades six through 12 from more than 50 Detroit-area schools, who will participate in Mosaic’s theater and vocal music programs at the building. Best practices from the pilot will be shared with other Detroit educators through workshops.
