Art and Social Justice K - 12 Curriculum
The Center for Art and Public Life worked in a yearlong partnership in 2005–6 with two Oakland public schools. United by common educational missions that include arts learning, social justice, and civic engagement, the Center and its two partners conceived and implemented curricula, called the Art and Social Justice Project. We are pleased to present sample curricula that were created by instructors at each school, interns and further developed and refined by coaching artists from the Center.

Reflections of Me and My World: Exchange and Responses
This book documents a visual exchange that took place between Oakland youth and CCA faculty members in 2009. In May of that year, each faculty participant selected a youth work from the ArtEsteem exhibition Reflections of Me and My World, then spent the summer and early fall responding to it by creating their own work of art. Their diverse pieces echo the concerns, desires, and dreams that they perceived in the youth works as well as in the world and in their own immediate environments.
