By placing local artists in residence at after-school programs throughout Miami-Dade County, we provide students with opportunities to learn in and through the arts. In addition to artistic skills, our programs teach essential 21st century learning skills, such as critical and creative thinking, problem-solving, and communication skills, as well as adaptability and perseverance. Participating Teaching Artists / Artists in Residency, are professional actors, directors, producers, dancers, choreographers, musicians, authors, poets, storytellers, and visual artists, helping students to explore ideas and concepts throughout their art making process. A4L’s after-school art residencies are offered at select Miami-Dade County Public Schools, parks, and community centers.
