At the heart of ArtsWestchester’s mission is the ideal that the arts are for everyone, regardless of age, geography or economy. Our work in local communities allow us to collaborate with the community-based organizations that keep our towns and villages vibrant.
ArtsWestchester is committed to keeping the arts in our schools. When teachers combine the arts with other subjects, they create vivid and exciting experiences that enhance learning. ArtsWestchester partners with professional artists through its Artist Residency and Teaching Artist programs to help classes achieve curriculum goals. Many of Westchester’s arts and cultural organizations also offer a variety of exceptional in-school, after school and on site programs.
Professional artists working in all fields and media are welcome to apply to become an ArtsWestchester Teaching Artist. Artists who pass our rigorous panel process have the opportunity to work in local schools and human services sites.
