ArtsConnection continually seeks to expand its roster with artists who draw inspiration from working with young people. For 40 years we have been one of New York City’s most comprehensive arts education organizations with programs in the performing, visual and media arts. In addition to programs for teens during out of school time, we provide nationally recognized programs—including residencies, curriculum development, teacher and artist professional development, educational research and professional performances—in over 115 elementary, middle and high schools throughout the 5 boroughs of the city.
Our artists pay specific attention to providing inclusive and culturally responsive programming that values the voice of students in the art making process and addresses the diversity of students in the New York City public school system. Artists work to build collaborative partnerships with teachers in all our programs in order to build an environment that helps students learn to imagine, create and innovate. Teaching artists engage in an on-going process of assessment and reflection with students about their work to inform their teaching practices and help students build ownership of their learning.
