Managing Budgets & Results

Artology was a 5-week summer program that integrated science and art. It was hosted by Build a

Bridge International. It focused on low income youth from cities all around the world. The

Artology programming followed the book Water Stories from Around the World and introduced

students to themes based in environmental stewardship, cooperation and the water cycle. Each

week students would learn different stories from around the world and explore ways they could

incorporate environmental practices into their daily lives through multi-sensory activities.

Additionally, the students worked in local farms and gardens to express what they had learned

through art-making. At the finale of the program, student art was displayed in the Art Museum

Community Gallery.
