Cultural Kaleidoscope




Cultural Kaleidoscope is a unique artist-in-the-schools program that links the neighboring and diverse communities of Palo Alto, East Palo Alto and Menlo Park, building bridges through the arts. By partnering K-5 classrooms from the Palo Alto Unified School District and Ravenswood City School District, Cultural Kaleidoscope fosters connections between students from diverse backgrounds. 

CULTURAL KALEIDOSCOPE is an interdisciplinary program that is offered FREE to participating schools. The program:
  • Integrates the visual arts with other curricular areas such as language arts, social studies and science through innovative and sequential lessons.
  • Fosters the 21st-century skills of critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, and communication—the building blocks of the Common Core State Standards—through discussion, collaborative learning and artmaking experiences.
Superintendent's Award for Excellence in Museum Education
