a quick introduction

what we do

we’ve designed a
complete art program

AIA_Still3
Art in Action’s curriculum spans from K-8, so whether you’re looking to teach art to a single class or a whole school, we’ve got you covered.

we train your
teachers & volunteers

6th Grade Training 2013
Having a culture of art at your school means everyone can get involved! Most training can be done over the web, even if you’ve never taught art before.

we provide the
art materials

why we do it

art develops leaders

“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

art builds creative confidence

“My students and I love love love this program! Truly, what an amazing gift this has been to our little community! Never have I felt so competent in incorporating art integration into my curriculum.”

art expands knowledge

“My class has studied Van Gogh, Ghirlandaio, and 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.”

we currently impact:

200
schools

2500
teachers & parents

50,000
students

but there are still

4 million

students without access to a visual arts program

 

Let’s change that together
