Thornwell School for the Arts has been awarded an Arts in Basic Curriculum grant by the South Carolina Arts Commission for the 2016-2017 school year. The support will allow our school to improve our innovative arts integration program and to bring in artists in residencies to teach dance and drama to our students.
This funding will allow our students and staff opportunities in dance and drama from talented artists. These opportunities will include5th graders working with Theater experts in producing our Spring performance and clinicians to work with grade levels for school wide performers. This funding will help promote the use of arts integration in our classrooms as an innovative way in which to reach every child.
