Art in the School
Putting Art Back in the School for Albuquerque’s Children.
Art in the School was established in 1985 when art had been completely eliminated from Albuquerque Public Schools. Despite improvements, opportunities for art are still extremely limited.
Art in the School provides three programs: volunteer training workshops to prepare parent volunteers to teach art in their children’s classrooms, an after-school art program for Title 1 (high poverty) Elementary Schools, and professional development workshops for teachers on integrating art across the curriculum.
