Education & Outreach Services

The Education Outreach Department provides services to a broad range of clients. Our partnerships with Central Minnesota Arts Board, Perpich Center for Arts Education and ISD 728 Regional Partner allow us to access additional valuable resources and skills as well. Call if you would like to develop a program to meet your specific goals/needs.

Artists

If you are an artist who loves to share your skills, come see us.   We can provide opportunities to expand your capacity to work with a broad range of clients, and to teach with greater clarity and effectiveness. The results could be not only a new source of satisfaction, but greater income as well. Click here to learn more.

Teachers

Teachers strive to bring all students to high quality work. But students learn in a variety of ways! Providing teachers with Artful Tools enhances the ability to reach more students and brings even greater satisfaction to the art of teaching.  From on-site workshops throughout the year to in-school staff trainings, to pre and post planning for student residencies, we can help teachers apply research-based artful strategies to their classrooms.

Schools

Providing teachers and students with Artful Tools makes learning more fun, more engaging, and more effective! We can help design an Artist in Residency to meet a specific standard, provide a workshop to hone new skills, plan a field trip to work in authentic art studios exploring and learning in new ways or provide access to powerful performances.

Community Agencies

If you are a social service agency providing services to a segment of our community, we invite you to explore, examine and expand the artistic services you may (or may not) be providing. The arts add a depth of experience for your clients that allow staff to see them with new eyes, allows clients to discover new strengths, and helps both to tell and hear their stories. We can connect you with the artists and the art forms that will best serve your needs. Click here to learn more.
