Arts for Learning

At left is a quick overview of Arts for Learning as seen through our work with IPS in the 2022-23 school year. Since its founding in 1961, Arts for Learning has partnered with IPS to provide arts experiences that improve academic performance, teach creative problem-solving, develop social and emotional skills, and enhance student self-esteem.

For a more comprehensive overview of the work we do, see our video of the same IPS program, featuring IPS Director of Enrichment Programs and the Director of Student Enrichment and Extended Learning as well as principals at IPS Schools Raymond F. Brandes School 65 and Jonathan Jennings School 109 and teachers and students from those schools and Daniel Webster School 46, Eleanor Skillen School 34, and James A. Garfield School 31.
