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.

Prince Among Slaves

Program description

Students will meet Abdul Rahman Ibrahima, a West African Muslim prince and military commander. Rahman was captured by his enemies, sold to slave traders, endured the Middle Passage, and eventually taken to a plantation near Natchez, Mississippi. After 40 years of enslavement, he was freed by order of President John Quincy Adams and continued on to strengthen the abolitionist movement.
