Arcata High art students teach lessons to community

ARCATA- Students of the Arcata Art Institute will help teach art classes to the community for Family Art Night Thursday night. Students will teach a variety of art classes to help educate the community and teachers about how art can be used in classrooms.

Every student teacher created their own lesson plans to teach the class and have been practicing for the night in class. The art night is designed to introduce the students to teaching and give back to the community.

Local teachers are encouraged to attend the event to help give them ideas of how they can introduce art into non-art classes like history and science.
