AiA introduces an artistic approach to cultural education:
Our Educational Program Developers envisioned an educational syllabus incorporating the concepts our instructors have been teaching in schools around the world for the last three years, with the combined effort of a team of local experts. The AiA Curriculum Program is about kids teaching kids through their own creativity. Knowledge is richly enhanced by cultural differences and connecting globally. Understanding is the first step to teaching tolerance.
We open student's eyes to new cultures, ethnicities, religions, and languages in a way that breaks down stereotypes and discrimination. The artistic portion of the curriculum gives children a voice, empowering them to express their feelings, build their self-esteem, and create a more positive future.
The program promotes cultural awareness, exploring topics like geography, religion, and ethnicity through interactive activities that foster creativity. Along with exploring their own country, the students explore four different countries with each edition of the AiA Curriculum. The first edition features Bahamas, Benin, Pakistan and Spain.
The main goal is to use these kits to enhance already established school curriculums and/or after school programs. The easy incorporation of the kits into an established academic program enables a wider diffusion of culture, throughout classrooms worldwide, allowing kids to share their personal histories, cultures and language in order to educate others.

In July 2008, Art in All of Us launched the new Curriculum Program with sixth grade students during a summer camp at The Hudson Guild (http://www.hudsonguild.org), a community center providing a variety of classes to both children and adults. Following Art in All of Us tradition, the curriculum was taught by a diverse and enthusiastic group of volunteers, whole-heartedly committed to delivering the beauty of different cultures to their students at The Hudson Guild.
Angela Tsiki, School Bridges Program Director of Hudson Guild, said, in response to the Curriculum Program, that "it's wonderful to see kids become culturally aware and really get to know the differences and similarities among people around the world, especially in this time of intense global conflict. We have such a diverse group of students already, so AiA's program helps celebrate our uniqueness. We are so grateful to AiA for bringing us this innovative curriculum."
