Homeroom Residency

ArtsPath is a regional arts-in-education program in partnership with the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts and is one of 12 throughout the state funded by the PCA.

Pennsylvania Council on the Arts logoArtsPath services a five-county region, including Armstrong, Butler, Clarion, Indiana, and Jefferson counties, in addition to the DuBois Area School District in Clearfield County. The work involves placing high-quality, professionally active visual, performing, media, and literary artists in educational settings for extended, in-depth residency activities. Further work of the partnership includes arts-in-education advocacy regionally, statewide, and nationally; providing artists and teachers personal educational opportunities; and promoting community outreach. Administered through the IUP College of Fine Arts, the program is directed through a consortium of regional concerns, including the Indiana Arts Council, ARIN Intermediate Unit 28, Associated Artists of Butler County, Slippery Rock University College of Humanities and Fine and Performing Arts, and the IUP College of Education and Education Technology. A host of regional educators, education administrators, and community leaders serve on an advisory committee.
