Tasty Education

Learning through cooking is a dynamic way to teach children. We strive to teach students to cook with real food while learning along the way. School enrichment classes never tasted so good! Our lessons are 50-60 minutes long. Since real-world relevance is critical in engaging students, students will prepare a recipe along with an SOL activity to complement the delicious dish. Enrichment providers deliver step-by-step, age-appropriate, hands-on instruction, which makes learning to cook real food fun for everyone!

The Culminating Event of the SmArtist Program is a showcase of student artwork. The Pop-Up Gallery will not only introduce the students to the planning and setting up of an art show, but it will also provide opportunities to engage parents and school-community partners in building a community supportive of creative youth development.
