Arts in Education

The Arts Council of Indianapolis envisions a city where every person has access to—and takes part in—high-quality and lifelong learning experiences in the arts, both in school and in the community. We believe that learning in the arts enables every individual to develop the critical thinking, collaborative, and creative skills necessary to succeed in the increasingly diverse world of tomorrow. By convening local arts organizations and coordinating local arts education services, the Arts Council of Indianapolis provides arts educators, teachers, teaching artists, and community groups with tools and resources needed to strengthen arts education locally. Members of the Arts Educator Network are the educators who are leading the efforts of local arts organizations in Central Indiana. The Arts Council’s Annual Grants Program provides funding for the efforts of dozens of local arts organizations working throughout the City of Indianapolis. The Any Given Child Indy initiative is a collective impact approach to ensuring access to the arts for every child in the Indianapolis Public Schools.
