The Intersections Project (TIP)

The Intersections Project (TIP) is a collaborative initiative launched by the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art (SECCA), Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools (WS/FCS), and the Arts Council of Winston-Salem/Forsyth County in Spring 2010. In a unique partnership and professional development opportunity, artists and classroom educators worked together to develop arts integrated lesson plans and residencies for classroom applications, all of which support the North Carolina Standard Course of Study in multiple disciplines. These lessons, along with documentation from their classroom implementation and other resources, serve as the foundation of this website designed to provide content for educators across the state and beyond.

SECCA launched TIP with a collaboration between art and science educators from RJ Reynolds and Mount Tabor high schools along with public artists Jimmy O’Neal and Kyungmi Shin. Lesson plans and residencies were inspired by the artists’ public works that were commissioned for Winston-Salem’s Downtown Center for the Arts.
