A DIFFERENT LEARNING 2000


In 1993 Ronald Chase created the SF Art & FIlm Program for Teenagers dedicated to bringing all the arts into young people's lives. By 1997 the program was offering free to students Art Saturday visits to galleries and museums,  free tickets to cultural events (symphony, opera, theater, etc) and had added a European Studies Program in the summer every three years. It took its best students to Europe in both 1997 and 1998.  By 2000 it had added a Cine/Club which showed classic films every week, and a Film Workshop which produced student films.  This film shows the way students were prepared to go to Europe--with an immersion in art history, history, and context using unorthodox teaching techniques Chase had developed.
