Artists in Schools - Projects

AIS – Projects is a long running residency program established to encourage students’ and teachers’ participation in and appreciation of the arts through creative interaction with a professional arts practitioner.

Artists in Schools projects develop partnerships between schools, communities and artists, while achieving a creative outcome through a considered and integrated process. The program is designed to engage students and their teachers in stimulating arts experiences that add richness and depth to their learning.

Artists in Schools projects:
• encourage student involvement in the creative process
• support student learning as they gain new skills and knowledge
• assist the development of confidence and self-esteem in students
• support teachers in delivery of the curriculum
• support the professional learning of teachers
• promote the value of the arts within the school and broader community
• enrich and add new perspectives to the school’s existing arts curriculum

More than 75,000 South Australian students have participated in Artists in Schools.
