of Artists in the Schools
Artists in the Schools, a
program of the Allied Arts Council, offers cultural
enrichment to students in grades pre-K-12 in public
and parochial schools in the St. Joseph area.
The program provides
cultural enrichment for students as they have the
experience of watching the creative process in action.
They discover artists as real people who possess
talents that they, too, can acquire.
Any teacher may request an
artist by completing a request form. Sessions are free
to schools within the St. Joseph city limits, and only
$20 for schools outside of the city limits. Contact
Allied Arts Council for forms and availability information.
This year features twelve
artists with unique talents who offer programs in a
variety of disciplines. As always, our artists are
available to fit the expanded enrichment needs of the
classroom, and all educators are encouraged to
participate. We are able to offer 100 sessions for the
2018-2019 school year, so get your requests in early.
The Allied Arts Council
and the St. Joseph Public School District are members
of the Partners in Education program of the
John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts,
working to foster partnerships among arts
organizations, schools and communities. Selected
because of a demonstrated commitment to the
improvement of education in and through the arts, the
partnership team participates in collaborative efforts
to make the arts integral to education.
The Artists in the Schools
program is fully endorsed by the St. Joseph School
District and is partially funded by the Arts Fund of
the Allied Arts Council and the Missouri Arts Council,
a state agency. The PTA Council, individual PTAs, and
local civic groups donate additional support.
