The AIR Program aims to achieve the following goals:

  • to give students the opportunity to meet local professional visual and performing artists who will share their expertise
  • to have local professional visual and performing artists share ideas and thereby help students and teachers deepen their understanding of the arts
  • to have local professional visual and performing artists lead students in activities that encourage personal exploration and development through the arts
  • to integrate the Fine Arts across the curriculum
  • to enrich curricular areas

This program brings professional artists into the classroom for five sessions or one day to develop  artist led workshops with students in the following areas: drama, dance, music, and visual art. Click here or the video below to view one Artist in Residence program at Carleton Elementary:
