Why Arts for Learning Connecticut?

Since 1979, Arts for Learning Connecticut has envisioned a statewide community where the arts are valued for their capacity to transform lives, and where every student is immersed in opportunities to imagine, create, and realize their full potential through the arts. Working together with artists, educators, and community leaders, we believe that we can transform teaching and learning in our state—and help build a brighter, more beautiful Connecticut.
