School Programs

School Programs



ArtsConnection provides quality arts learning experiences in over 100 K-12 New York City public schools annually.  We work in partnership with schools to custom design programs that:

  • Facilitate student learning in dance, music, theater and visual arts

  • Build Common Core capacities

  • Engage families and communities


Residencies are tailored to meet the goals of schools and the developmental level of students. Each residency includes planning and reflection time among teachers and artists. Residencies can occur during the school day in partnership with classroom teachers or as part of an after-school program, and range in length from 10 to 30 sessions.


Family Events

Family members and caregivers join in exciting arts experiences that help build community and connect to student learning in the classroom.


Held in the school, professional performers bring an array of experiences to your students. This is a wonderful opportunity to introduce students to an art form and a culture.
