Who We Are

Since 1998, Arts Ed Collaborative has been partnering with educators to unlock the transformative power of the arts in southwestern Pennsylvania. We offer professional learning programs for arts educators, school district support to strengthen K–12 arts programs, evaluation and consulting services, and convenings that highlight innovative practices in arts education.

Our Work

Arts Ed Collaborative offers professional learning opportunities for school districts, arts organizations, teaching artists, and educators like you.

For individual educators, we offer cohort-based programs like Leadership Academy and gatherings like our Regional Arts Ed Day conference. For school districts, we offer a holistic Arts Ed 360° program, standards-based curriculum writing, and student assessment workshops. For arts orgs, we can consult with you to evaluate and improve programs. We can also create customized learning experiences that connect you with new ideas, partners, and resources.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re happy to share outside resources and to help anchor the Creative Learning Network, which creates opportunities for teaching artists and learners alike to experience rewarding virtual arts ed. In 2021, we’ve partnered with Ingenuity to bring you artlook® SWPA, a one-of-a-kind hub for arts learning in our region. Visit our What Is artlook®? page for more on how you can join us on the map.
