Taking leadership at smARTS

Nearly every Friday our students visit the local elementary school and teach art classes. For the first time this year, five of our veteran smARTS volunteers taught their own lessons! Lincoln Belford, Katie Hahka, and Chelsea Sik took nearly forty kids and played acting games outside in the field. Katie Berger and Mack Shapiro taught the kids to sing and dance to “It’s a Hard Knock Life” from Annie, while also using the opportunity to educate the kids about the Great Depression and social issues.
