Arts Education Mission
For over 34 years, a key component of the service ARTSBRIDGE provides to the community is through Arts Education. ARTSBRIDGE is committed to working with the schools in the Mid-Ohio Valley to ensure that performing arts experiences are available to young students throughout the school year.
The “Catalog of Artists and Performers” brings a talented group of local artists representing a variety of art forms, into 31 elementary school classrooms in Wood County, West Virginia and Washington and Morgan counties in Ohio throughout the school year.
The “Artists-on-Tour” series brings three national tour groups a year to perform for over 4,000 students in grades K-6 in the counties we serve.
Both these programs provide students with quality, live performing arts experiences that complement learning and enrich their lives. Artsbridge provides study guides for teachers which connect with curriculum goals for each program.
