a quick introduction

why we do it

leadership

“Arts education fosters bright, creative, and socially engaged students who will grow up to be our next leaders, parents, teachers, artists, and engineers. Their innovative ideas will shape industries; their creative thinking will find out-of-the-box solutions for a global society, and will provide students with a way to understand themselves, and have a sense of belonging.” — Jane Chu, National Endowment for the Arts.

creative confidence

“Art in Action not only provides an exposure to the arts, it helps students develop self esteem, is an outlet for creative expression, and it increases parent participation within the school. Our students are very fortunate to have this program.” — Art in Action Parent Docent

knowledge

“My class has studied Van Gogh, Ghirlandaio, Miro, and African textiles to name a few… I see my students lose any hesitation with regard to self-expression and make meaningful connections across the curriculum. They are as intrigued by the lives and techniques of the artists as they are with the projects.” — Elementary School Teacher

We currently make an arts education accessible to 200 schools, 2500 teachers & parents, and 50,000 students. But there are still 4 million students without access to a visual arts program. Join us in our mission to bring art to students everywhere!

the curriculum

Each of Art in Action’s nine program levels has at least twelve sequential, age-appropriate lessons that provide a high-quality visual art curriculum. The multifaceted lessons develop students’ critical-thinking skills, creative confidence, hands-on skills, visual literacy, self-esteem, and an appreciation of other cultures.
