Distance Learning Arts Studio

The Art and Culture Center’s Distance Learning Arts Studio program teaches the visual and performing arts, music and literature to students in Broward public schools via a two-way teleconferencing system operated by the Broward Education Communications Network (BECON).

In partnership with artists, cultural organizations and community groups, the Center delivers free instruction to classrooms and media centers that integrates the arts into a variety of curriculum areas, including math, language arts, history and cultural studies.

Since the program’s inception in 2005/06, the Center has broadcast more than 250 Distance Learning sessions to more than 13,000 students and 800 educators in Broward County Public Schools – about 1,200 students per year. More than 200 previously aired sessions are currently archived at the Center’s website and can be downloaded at no charge.

All curricula for the Center’s youth education programs follow Next Generation Sunshine State Standards set by the Florida Department of Education. By adhering to state curriculum standards, the Center assures that the proven benefits of the arts are applied in all subject areas.
