For more than 20 years, the Indianapolis Art Center’s Outreach program, ArtReach, has provided high-quality, year-round, community-based art education to children ages 5-18 living in underserved areas in Indianapolis. This free after school and summer studio art program serves 900 students at over 18 sites annually. The Art Center is proud that this partnership includes seven IPS schools including IPS #14, 42, 54, 58, Arsenal Tech High School, Crispus Attucks High School, and HL Harshman High School. During their semester-long ArtReach class, students learn art-making, art history, art criticism and aesthetics and gain valuable self-confidence and self-expression along the way.

The Indiana State Museum & Historic Sites has a thriving educational and entertaining live theater performance program that brings Indiana history to life through character appearances as Mary Todd Lincoln, Levi Coffin, and Gene Stratton-Porter. Theater performances such as these are important to art education. Join the Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites, Arts Council of Indianapolis, and Any Given Child Indy as we celebrate National Arts in Education Week September 11 – 17, 2016. 

 The Indiana State Museum & Historic Sites is inviting the public to support arts education through the Week of Giving. Gifts received will be used to provide free educational theater programs for K-12 students. 

 After giving, please share the link with others and let them know they can make a difference too. 

Thank you for your support of arts in education.

Indiana Repertory Theatre

The IRT’s Student Matinee Program exists to support four foundational objectives: to produce quality theatrical experiences for students that relate directly to events, people, and issues studied in school; to offer students, many for the first time, a professional theatre experience; to provide students with opportunities to observe, discuss, and understand unfamiliar experiences, especially those with ethical and multi-cultural themes; and to give teachers effective, creative, and engaging teaching tools. Last season, 3,623 IPS students attended IRT Student Matinee productions. The IRT believes that cost is a large barrier for IPS schools to attend student matinee productions at the Theatre. Therefore, the IRT will raise funds to bring an increased number of IPS students to the Theatre in the 2016-2017 Season.

Indiana Music Education Association



The impact of teachers in the classroom is immeasurable, this is especially true for music educators who sometimes see an entire school’s student population on a daily or weekly basis. Appropriately preparing these educators with tools and skills they can use is so necessary. The Indiana Music Education Association seeks funding to help continue providing quality teacher growth opportunities for IPS’s music educators. Funds raised will help IMEA continue to provide clinicians for IPS as well as scholarships to its teacher growth opportunities throughout the state.

AIR image 2 Katrina MittenThe Artist in Residence program is offered in the classroom at no cost and targets those who could not visit the Eiteljorg otherwise, especially third-fifth graders. AIR is especially in demand during October and November, when Native American history is studied. Sessions last an hour and include an introduction to the artist and their work, culture-sharing, storytelling, art instruction and an art-making component. Pre- and post-visit curriculum materials are developed for each artist and are available to teachers online. Through this personal contact, students learn Native Americans are not relegated to history books but are alive and thriving today.
