ArtsPath is a regional arts-in-education program in partnership with the
Pennsylvania Council on the Arts and is one of 14 throughout the state funded by the PCA.
ArtsPath services a five-county region, including Armstrong, Butler, Clarion, Indiana, and Jefferson counties. 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 Communications. A host of regional educators, education administrators, and community leaders serve on an advisory committee.
Through a consortium of area educators, administrators, students, residents, and civic leaders, and with resources available within the community and through Indiana University of Pennsylvania, ArtsPath maintains a communicative partnership that promotes quality arts experiences, establishing the use of the Arts in education crossing all curricula as a priority, offering regional AIE services, generating community-wide and regional support, and advocating the arts classroom teacher as integral to a student’s complete education.
