KJ’s art initiative brings "Any Given Child" to SCUSD

The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts has chosen Sacramento to pilot the Any Given Child program in SCUSD schools.

The initiative could reinvent arts education for schools struggling with budget cuts and fewer art teachers. The Kennedy Center will help identify the resources needed to create a tailor-made art curriculum for both the Twin Rivers School District and the Sacramento City Unified School District. The program will include teacher training and other resources, provided by the Kennedy Center at no cost.

Officials said they chose Sacramento out of a list of 27 cities in part because of the city’s For Art’s Sake initiative started by Mayor Kevin Johnson.
