Custom Programs

Arts Ed Collaborative can create programs, stage learning days for you and your colleagues, or consult with you to help you meet your needs.

City As Classroom

In August 2019, Arts Ed Collaborative worked with Duquesne City School District on our latest City As Classroom day. We planned a day-long intensive that saw participants visit sites throughout Pittsburgh.

First, the Duquesne City team visited Pittsburgh Festival Opera to create “machines” using creative movement with Regional Arts Ed Day keynote Anqwenique Kinsel. Next, they visited our friend Nina Barbuto of Assemble to hack different objects and learn about Assemble’s STEAM programming. Lastly, we took our participants to the Pittsburgh Center for Creative Reuse, where creative education manager Melissa Rogers guided participants in using recycled materials to create a vision for the district.

Each City As Classroom program is different—we choose sites based on each team’s interests and needs. We look forward to assembling more City As Classroom days for partners like you in the coming year.

Hiring Consulting

Over the past several school years, Arts Ed Collaborative has consulted with Burrell School District, Hampton Township School District, and Keystone Oaks School District to update interview protocols and refine aspects of the hiring process.

We envision an arts ed ecosystem in which every district is able to find the arts teachers that are right for them. Finding right-matched educators means young people have access to better, more student-centered arts learning. We’d love to work with you to help you strengthen the arts in your district.
