We are lucky at the Integrated Arts Academy. Why? Because we work with fantastic partners in Burlington who care about our students as well as the arts.
This fall, the Boys & Girls Club of Burlington, the Fleming Museum at the University of Vermont, and the IAA teamed up to offer our students a fall art adventure class at the museum. For eleven weeks our students are privileged to attend an art class taught by UVM art education students. Using the vast resources at the museum and the museum as a classroom, IAA students have the chance to view and discuss a piece in the exhibit followed by a hands-on art lesson in the museum classroom. This afterschool enrichment opportunity has been made available to the students of the IAA because of the partnership we have with the Fleming Museum. Additionally, a big shout out and thanks to the Boys and Girls Club! With their mini-van, we can easily shuttle these students to the museum and back.
