Arts in Education
Prior to Arts In Education performances, teachers may receive curriculum guides that include student activity and evaluation reports. The curriculum guides enhance student appreciation of the upcoming performance, include various academic disciplines, and conform to Illinois State Learning Standards.
Through Arts In Education, The Center reaches students from Chicago to Kankakee and from Joliet to Schererville, Indiana.
Part of the programming for Arts In Education is via the Medhurst Children’s Fund, established five years ago in memory of The Center board member Ralph Medhurst. This fund finances tickets for students in underserved Southland schools. Since its inception, the fund has donated more than 5,850 tickets to The Center events. Students gain exposure to the arts—expanding their horizons and fostering learning in math, science and language arts.
