Arts for Learning

Arts for Learning

Arts for Learning engages children with the arts by bringing teaching artists into schools and communities. We believe in the arts and their ability to transform education. We believe that when learning is enriched with the arts, students get more out of school.

Arts for Learning offers programs in various forms – including performances, hands-on workshops, and in-depth residencies. Our programs connect the arts with the curriculum to supplement learning.

Our programs occur wherever learning takes place, including afterschool programs, libraries, community centers, juvenile detention facilities, and hospitals.

Find Your Voice through Poetry by Chantel Massey

Program description

Through an approach of collective understanding, students will use poetry and poetic devices to question, challenge, and better understand how they engage with the world, their peers, and themselves. Students will engage in interactive activities dealing with the sounds, visuals, and rhythms of words. We are exploring the liberation in literature!
