Resident Arts Educator
Meet Brianne Pegg
Our Resident Arts Educator Brianne Pegg creates an arts curriculum focused on visual and dramatic arts that integrate with the school’s Creative Curriculum. This includes daily classroom instruction, teacher training, and family engagement activities. Brianne also works collaboratively with the Center’s licensed clinical social worker to address the special needs of students who have experienced trauma.
Having a dedicated Arts Educator who works closely with faculty ensures students benefit from the arts through:
- Evening arts and culture experiences
- Guest artists
- Classroom art experiences with activities designed to align with developmental needs
- Stay and Play Studio, a weekly art and play studio for parents and children to experience the joy of creativity together
- Conscious Creativity, a program that supports students who need extra help with their social/emotional development
- Field Trips
- The Studio, new in 2017, a makerspace for students to explore group and individual art-experiences in a space designed for creative thought.
St. Mark Center welcomes Guest Artists to share artistically- and culturally-enriching experiences year-round as part of our Creative Curriculum.
Our Tiny Tuesday Concert Series brings the world of art and performance directly to students. Our Fall Festival and other arts and culture events are often larger in scale and provide opportunities for engagement with families and the broader community.
