Interurban Center for the Arts
The Interurban Center for the Arts (ICA) has a long and valued history in our communities with 31 years of experience in arts - enrichment and development for school age children. The ICA serves several elementary schools in South King and Pierce County and helps schools facilitates monthly art appreciation classes to students.
Trained volunteers visit the classroom once a month. Each lesson covers one influential artist and their work, basic art concepts, and concludes with an age-appropriate, hands-on art project.
Through the ICA,
participating schools receive:
Each program receives eight large prints of famous works of art to use during the school year. Every large print comes with accompanying lesson notes and a corresponding project binder with classroom-tested art project ideas.
The ICA provides free or low-cost workshops and trainings to all art docents to support program continuity and quality.
ICA staff offers educational training, workshops, and one-on-one guidance to the in-school coordinator of the art docent program.
