To enhance every child’s education through performing, visual and literary arts in the schools and community.
Who We Are
We provide equitable access to the arts for K-12 children and support teachers through professional development and arts integration programming. Imagine if every student in every school had the opportunity to express themselves through the arts. We do, everyday! Arts in Education promotes arts as a core component of educating the whole child. Through AIEG programs, professional teaching artists engage the creative imagination of students through visual arts, literary arts, music, theatre, dance and media arts residencies, classes and community projects.
– PROGRAM OVERVIEW –
In-School Art Residencies and Performances
We offer one and multi-week residencies and school-wide performances in literary, visual and media arts, as well as music, theatre, dance.
ASAP: After School Arts Partnerships
We collaborate with school districts and community organizations to provide after-school enrichment to K-12 students.
Inside Out: Community Arts Program
We engage K-12 students in the creation of community and public art with a focus on social justice, inquiry and thinking outside of the box.
We offer arts-integration workshops to K-12 teachers and teaching artists in after-school workshops, in-service trainings, and summer institutes.
