Julia Mastropaolo

Julia Mastropaolo is the Director of Arts Education at United Arts where manages our flagship program, Artists in Schools. Each year Julia recruits and trains upwards of 200 volunteers for this program and partners with over 100 professional teaching artists/groups to provide curriculum-based performances, workshops, and residencies in 150+ schools in Wake County.

Previously Julia worked as a Grants Officer with the Arts and Science Council in Charlotte, NC; the Grants Director for The Arts Council of Winston Salem and Forsyth County, NC; and most recently, co-managed Cool Walkings, the Glenwood South Street Scape project that involved painted murals on four crosswalks in Raleigh’s first ever permanent public art installation on public streets.

Julia holds a degree in Studio Art from Meredith College and a certificate in Non-Profit Management from Duke University. In her spare time, she likes to garden, travel, and when possible, produce her own art.
