The arts empower all children to unlock their full academic, creative and personal potential.


To engage children in dynamic, creative and rigorous learning through the arts.

We do this by:

  • Partnering with K–8 public schools to embed professional teaching artists in classrooms.
  • Increasing the capacity of teachers and professional teaching artists to deliver arts-integrated instruction that meets next generation academic standards.
  • Creating and demonstrating models of excellence in arts-integrated instruction.
  • Providing arts enrichment in afterschool and community-based programs.
  • Working alongside others to advocate for the arts and broaden the conversation around the definition of student achievement.
