About ArtsBridge

Who?

ArtsBridge is an outreach program open to any undergraduate or graduate College of Fine Arts student seeking a degree in Architecture, Art, Dance, Film, Music or Theatre.

What?

UNLV ArtsBridge is an outreach program of the UNLV College of Fine Arts that partners fine arts students with at-risk elementary school students to teach biology, math, history and a variety of other topics using the arts.

Being an ArtsBridge scholar is an opportunity for you to design and teach a project in your area of study with a local classroom of students (Grades 1-5). The time commitment for participating in this program is about the same as one of your classes at UNLV. Scheduled teaching time equals 1-2 hours a week with extra time needed for planning and occasional meetings.

When?

The UNLV ArtsBridge Program is semester-long program.

Where?

Presently, UNLV ArtsBridge partners with Paradise Elementary School, Walter Bracken STEAM Academy, and Will Beckley Elementary School.

Why?

ArtsBridge Scholars earn $1,500 per semester…it is also a great way to share your passion with children in the community and gain teaching experience.
