Our curriculum is constantly evolving.

Progressive Arts Alliance speaks art in the classroom through a wide range of art forms, from sculpture and mixed media to contemporary dance and DJ’ing with turntables. We recruit and train a specialized group of professional artists that have the expertise to speak art in schools and libraries throughout the community. We transform these individuals from artists to artist-educators and our artist-educators partner with classroom teachers to merge art into other subject areas.

Through arts-integration, we connect artists to teachers, and students to inspiration. We enrich the learning process by connecting relevant forms of art to learning across a variety of subjects, including science and math. Our artists are seekers, risk takers, question askers, and problem solvers.  Explore their insights into their arts-integration work.
