Family Arts and Creativity (FAC) is designed to strengthen child-parent relationships, build parent-teacher partnerships, and enrich the school community. The program was launched in 1998 in partnership with the Center for Family Involvement in Schools at Rutgers University. It is modeled on the highly successful Family Math and Family Science programs.
Each family workshop engages parents and their young children in open-ended arts activities structured around a central theme, such as family traditions, or the expression of emotion. Through modeling, professional development and coaching, FAC prepares teachers to lead family arts workshops in their own school community.
