Arts Learning and Public Art in the Classroom

Public art enhances and enlivens public spaces. It can also serve as a great jumping-off point for active arts learning for K-12 students. Our AIPP and Arts in Education program staff are collaborating to help make these connections. The outcome? A series of four, high quality, participatory arts lessons that are based on engaging works of public art situated around the state.
