The International Museum of Cultures is honored to assist the Cedar Hill Independent School District in their engaging Elementary Arts Program.
Below is a video discussing the arts programs at two elementary schools in Cedar Hill, Texas, Waterford Oaks and Highlands Elementary, using Project Based Learning. The instructors immerse the students of these schools, which are from diverse backgrounds, in multi-cultural hands-on projects.

As stated in the video above, Arts Programs are such an integral part of the educational puzzle. The spotlight is shown upon these great programs during National Arts in Education Week, September 9-15, 2012. Congress designated Arts in Education Week to promote and showcase the immense role arts education has in producing engaged, successful, and college and career-ready students.
The International Museum of Cultures always appreciates the opportunity to work with educational institutions to further enhance its mission to be a window on indigenous people of the world and to create greater appreciation for ethnic and cultural diversity, thereby furthering mutual respect and peace between peoples.
