Despite all the barriers we know exist, CLARA Classroom makes arts learning easy to plan, prepare, and deliver to students while keeping them engaged in school.
TRANSFORMING THE WAY WE EXPERIENCE THE ARTS
A growing number of researchers and educators are in agreement that participation in the arts can be a significant factor in improving academic outcomes. Yet, many educators struggle to find the time, energy, and resources to implement arts learning into their everyday curriculum. CLARA Classroom was developed to alleviate those challenges.
CLARA Classroom is an interactive learning platform that brings a virtual teaching artist into any learning environment to provide music, dance, and theatre education to students in grades TK-12.
NO PLANNING OR MATERIALS REQUIRED
Every course is carefully crafted to reduce the burden on teachers to confidently and efficiently deliver high-quality arts programming to students—regardless of training or expertise in the arts!
Teachers are provided with structured, sequential video instruction and flexible pacing guides to accommodate any schedule to ensure that all students receive the benefits of quality arts education.
CREATING POSITIVE ACADEMIC OUTCOMES
The arts have the power to change the way students show up in the classroom and for themselves. Research shows that the arts can transfer knowledge to non-arts domains and significantly improve
- Creative thinking
- Problem-solving skills
- School attendance
Engagement in learning
Most importantly, students involved in the arts are more likely to show improved academic performance, increased school attendance, and deeper engagement across all subject areas.
