ARTISTS IN THE SCHOOLS
About the Program
Artists-in-the-Schools (AIS) offers K-12 teachers from five area school districts and several private schools the opportunity to request interactive workshops in their classrooms. AIS connects professional artists in music, theatre, dance, storytelling, visual arts, creative writing, and cultural studies with classroom teachers and their students. AIS is made available to Greater Tulsa Area school systems and all K-12 teachers are invited to request this program for their classrooms.
AIS is a fifty year tradition with area school teachers and their students. Musicians, actors, dancers, storytellers, visual artists, writers and cultural presenters provide an exciting component to teachers’ curricula. Designed for hands-on participatory learning, each workshop and presentation is intended to enrich aesthetic sensitivities, offer cultural perspectives in the arts, and enhance the school’s cultural activities. AIS serves seven area school districts representing more than 154 schools reaching approximately 65,000 students each year.
