The Joy 2 Learn Foundation’s mission is to improve public education by creating high-quality arts content featuring world renowned artists. Each ePresentation is comprised of video clips of a world renowned artist, who introduces his or her art form, discusses its history, background and specificity, presents personal insights, and performs or demonstrates. The content was designed for use in the arts, but they can also be applied to reinforce reading and writing skills, social studies, math and science. Each ePresentation is accompanied by extensive teacher material including lesson plans, which are designed to support state curriculum standards. Recent partnerships include the Kennedy Center and their ArtsEdge website and Lesley University, which offers a course for K-12 teachers on integrating the arts and creativity into classrooms based on the Joy2Learn presentations. A new presentation featuring Frank Gehry on Architecture will be available soon!
