The Harwelden Institute for Arts in Education, modeled after New York’s Lincoln Center Institute, is a partnership of Tulsa artists, arts organizations and schools working together bring aesthetic education to students. The Harwelden Institute began in 1984 with 8 schools, currently 54 schools participate and we reach over 18,000 students yearly.
The Institute was established in 1984 and is modeled after the Lincoln Center Institute in New York City. Working in partnership with area educators, the Institute develops experiential studies focusing on works of art, including theater, music, dance and the visual arts. By actively engaging students in ongoing inquiry, research, discussion and reflection, the Institute supports learning across the curriculum, builds critical thinking skills, and stimulates the perceptual ability of young learners. As a result, unexpected connections are made, alternative points of view considered, complexities explored, and doors to new and imagined worlds opened.
