For Schools

“My husband and I believe strongly that arts education is essential for building innovative thinkers who will be our nation’s leaders of tomorrow.”

—First Lady Michelle Obama

 

We bring the most innovative, applicable, and powerful arts education resources to Bay Area schools.
The wisdom of teaching core curriculum through an art form is proven to be a fantastic way to address all
learning styles—it’s fun, active, and opens profound analytical connections in your students.
