    Duarte Unified is pleased to announce that the Los Angeles County Arts Commission and LA County Arts Ed Collective have awarded Andres Duarte Arts Academy an Advancement Grant of $16,000 to implement the Artful Connections program for the 2019-20 school year! Artful Connections is delivered by teaching artists from the Armory Center for the Arts who will provide the entire Andres Duarte faculty with arts integration training and support teachers directly in the classroom to provide integrated arts instruction in math and science to students in Grades 2-5. This is the fourth year in a row that Duarte Unified has been awarded this grant to implement the Artful Connections program, which is already in place at Beardslee, Maxwell, Valley View, and Royal Oaks. This grant comes at the perfect time as Andres Duarte is completing adoption of the Leonard Bernstein Foundation’s Artful Learning framework, and the Artful Connections program will serve to further infuse the arts into the school culture.
