Artists in Schools


Our flagship program, Artists in Schools, places professional teaching artists in Wake County K-12 schools for curriculum-based performances, workshops, and residencies for over 130,000 students each year. These programs help students learn to problem-solve, work together, and seek creative means toward common goals.
