artlook® SWPA School Sign Ups Are Due July 31!

Are you ready to showcase the importance of arts education in your school or district?

Join more than 200 schools and arts partners across the region by completing your artlook® SWPA commitment form by July 31. Arts Ed Collaborative (AEC) launched artlook® SWPA in 2021, a free online hub created to help educators in our region to immerse young people in powerful, personally relevant arts learning opportunities.

Now’s the perfect time to explore all the benefits of artlook® SWPA before the July 31 commitment deadline. Our team is here to guide you through the onboarding process. You can use artlook® SWPA to:

  • increase opportunities for collaboration and communication,
  • secure partnerships and resources based on individual school needs,
  • share arts ed program information with families and the community, and
  • build and sustain strong arts programs.

To make this as easy as possible, we’ve outlined the process below:

artlook school timeline

First up: sign the commitment form by July 31. Simple, right?

Next: identify at least one artlook® SWPA liaison per school, someone who can give additional information about the state of arts education in your school. While you do that, we’ll load arts-related administrative data from the Pennsylvania Department of Education onto the artlook® SWPA platform, start building your profile, and create your user logins. We are committed to streamlining this process for you!

In October, liaisons and administrators receive their login instructions and liaisons complete the school survey and profile. We’ll offer live and asynchronous technical assistance to support you along the way.

So, what are you waiting for? Join our vast network of schools, arts organizations, and teaching artists on artlook® SWPA. Remember, schools and districts have until July 31 to complete the commitment form. If you have any questions about artlook® SWPA, please reach out to our Director of Programs, Anqwenique Kinsel at

We’re looking forward to seeing you on artlook® SWPA this fall!
