About Us

This website features the K-2 Teaching Artist Project (TAP), a collaboration between the San Diego Unified School District and the University of California, Irvine (made possible by a USDE Arts in Education Model Development and Dissemination grant).

The project used arts integration to boost the oral language skills of children in 30 high-poverty elementary schools that serve large numbers of children who speak a language other than English at home.
