Our approach combines empirical research, a strong theoretical base and decades of practical experience. Using the tools of collective impact, MINDPOP brings equity and access to quality arts education to schools and communities, and builds the instructional skills of teachers to lead creative classrooms.
Our solutions support individual teachers, campus level leaders and district administrators and policies, as well as artist and family communities.
Unequal access to arts learning is not the problem of schools alone. By working with arts partners, philanthropists and the community, the collective group can combine resources to meet their common goals.
By addressing how we instruct students both in and out of school, we can maximize instruction time and amplify the benefits of creative teaching.
An effective Creative Learning Initiative includes equitable access to arts learning in all art forms at all levels, and supports general classroom teachers using creative teaching strategies across the curriculum. It also meaningfully integrates community arts partners into schools and assures students and their families have access to arts experiences in their neighborhoods and across the community.
