Briscoe is S.M.A.R.T. History

In 2012 S.M.A.R.T. was invited by the SAISD Foundation to become an art partner with Briscoe Academy. We began teaching one class and as of 2018 S.M.A.R.T. now serves all grade levels pre-k through 5th and PPCD students.

Program Description:

The Briscoe is S.M.A.R.T. art partnership is the only one of it’s kind in the San Antonio Independent School District. Since 2011, close collaboration with campus educators affords students the opportunity to leave their school during the school day and experience art on the SMART campus. S.M.A.R.T.’s TEKS and IB aligned art programming directly supports Briscoe Elementary’s IB World School Candidacy curriculum. Through STEAM based art education S.M.A.R.T introduces students to multiple art forms using a 4 step process. This school-wide inclusive, during the day art program, serves PPCD and pre-k through 5th grade students.

The Briscoe is S.M.A.R.T. mission

is to support the IB goals of Briscoe Elementary and create a foundation for creative expression through our 4 step art education curriculum. Through STEAM based programming S.M.A.R.T. aligns classroom academics with various art mediums.
