What is 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. Studies show that when learning is enriched with the arts, students get more out of school. We offer programs in various forms – including performances, hands on workshops and in-depth residencies, our Programs integrate the arts with the curriculum to supply learning. Our programs occur wherever learning takes place, including after school programs, libraries, community centers, juvenile detention facilities, and hospitals.

Our Vision
A future in which all children and youth have the opportunity to engage in quality arts learning experiences that nurture creativity, build cultural understanding, and enhance the development of their learning and life skills.

Bringing the arts to Indiana classrooms for more than 50 years

History Photo
Since 1961, Arts for Learning has distinguished itself as Indiana’s premier provider of arts education programs for kids.

Arts for Learning reaches more than 50,000 children a year through our unique, quality arts in education programs. But our success didn’t happen overnight. It came from years of smart leadership, a devoted staff, and an exceptional pool of teaching artists dedicated to helping kids reach their creative and intellectual potentials. As Arts for Learning evolves, our mission stays the same: empowering children to achieve their creative and intellectual potential through arts in education.

Today, we’re proud to say that we’re Indiana’s largest and oldest arts in education organization. Much of our history of success is due to the outstanding support we’ve received nationally and from our local community.
