Approach

Arts Access, Creative Teaching and Arts Partnerships for all students — in and out of school.

Our Key Concepts:

Address all levels of the system

Our solutions support individual teachers, campus level leaders and district administrators and policies, as well as artist and family communities.

Act collectively

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.

Attend to instruction, curriculum and their interaction

By addressing how we instruct students both in and out of school, we can maximize instruction time and amplify the benefits of creative teaching.

Include Arts Learning, Creative teaching, and Arts Partners

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.
