Head Start With Art

Brattleboro Museum & Art Center’s Head Start With Art has served thousands of children, their families, and teachers since 2001. Coordinated by BMAC and supported by the Vermont Arts Council, Early Education Services, and private donors, this initiative serves Head Start classrooms in Brattleboro and Westminster, Vermont. Infants, toddlers, and pre-school age children participate in a multi-session program over several months with one or both of the program’s teaching artists: Cyndal Ellis, of SoBo Studio (music and movement) and Katie Bachler (clay and other media). Classroom teachers and teaching artists work together to create an enjoyable, integrated experience that nurtures creativity, exploration, cooperation, and oral communication.
