Our History

Bringing the arts to Indiana classrooms for more than 50 years.

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

Arts for Learning reaches more than 61,000 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.
