Artists in the Schools is now coming back online after being on hold during the pandemic.
For more information, please reach out to Warren Maycock @ email@example.com
We are currently working hard to line up the local artists who will be on this year's roster.
The Artists in the Schools program provides the opportunity for Dufferin County students to learn and benefit from enriched art workshops taught by local artists.
Tailored to work within the expectations of the Ontario Arts curriculum, these workshops offer a focused experience from a variety of media in the visual, performance, and literary arts, as well as dance and music.
This program promotes the arts in both public and private elementary and secondary schools. Thanks program's success, many participating schools go on to create full Art Days utilizing DAC’s funding as well as funding from their respective parent councils. These school wide Art Days will provide a more thorough arts education to all students.
The Artists in the Schools is available to schools within Dufferin County, and the Dufferin Arts Council is confident that with the continued funding of an enriched arts education, our community will inspire future generations of artists.
