Current Cultural Arts Theme
Each year FAME programs focus on the arts culture of a selected part of the world. All FAME programs will use this culture focus of study during the year. This allows students and teachers to explore different cultures and integrate arts programming into other academic areas such as social studies.
The 2014– 2015 cultural focus is "Out of this World" - Outer Space, the Future and Beyond! Come join us on as we journey in the world of imagination creating music and art. Become a member of FAME.
