Elements of heART
The Elements of heART program is designed to foster a curiosity for functional visual arts concepts and media while cultivating a deeper sense of self through community building and application of strong character choices. Our model supports social and emotional resilience and visual literacy through playful facilitation of young A.R.T.I.S.T.S. who understand that meaningful innovation is synonymous with developing the values of a courageous, compassionate leader. Our content is visual, our context is character and together our framework is making a vital impact for hundreds of K-5 kids in the Bay Area...

"Over the last year I have had the fortunate experience of working with Vita though the Cosmic KIDS program. Vita has consistently presented professionalism, innovation and creative vision in her role as an art educator at ASEP. Every lesson that Vita teaches has clear intentions and learning goals for her students. Vita's ability to facilitate positive classroom management practices has been impressive to our team as she is able to meet the specific needs and learning styles of her students. I appreciate Vita's flexibility as she is willing to adjust her schedule or classroom location in situations where teamwork is needed most. After one year of ASEP's partnership with Cosmic KIDS our organization has decided to expand Vita's role so more students in our community will have access the impressive curriculum that Cosmic KIDS offers. I look forward to continuing ASEP's partnership with Cosmic KIDS into the 16-17 school year and beyond!"

"Vita has been teaching art to my daughter for a year. She has been a wonderful teacher and a wise and warm life-coach. With Vita's instruction and guidance, my daughter dramatically expanded her skills and gained a new found self-confidence. It is thanks to Vita that my daughter was able to achieve her goal of admission to a competitive arts middle school. Vita is a gem!"
