Inland Empire Campus Hosts Elementary and High School Students for Pizza Making Workshops
May 30, 2017
Recently, The Art Institute of California—Inland Empire, a campus of Argosy University hosted “Little Buddies” from Bing Wong Elementary School and “Super G-3” students from Indian Springs High School to campus. Both teams are comprised of special education students and they were paired up to participate in a two-hour pizza making workshop.
The event was hosted by The Art Institute of California—Inland Empire’s campus relations department. The students learned how to make pizza dough from scratch and chatted about the process of how yeast makes the dough rise. Art Institute culinary and advertising students assisted in the event so that each participant could create a personal pizza. Once all pizzas were cooked, everyone took part in a pizza party. The students who volunteered from The Art Institute of California—Inland Empire are working toward Associate of Science in Culinary Arts or Bachelor of Science in Advertising degrees.
Participating elementary and high school students were also given recipes for the dough and a marinara sauce to take home.
The Art Institute of California—Inland Empire is continuing to partner with Bing Wong Elementary School to provide opportunities for young students to experience the creative arts.
