Artists In Classrooms (AIC) provides quality, in-depth instruction in the visual and performing arts to students K-12 throughout the Harbor Region. Professional artists teach all AIC classes through ongoing classroom residencies

AIC also provides Arts Exploration Field Trips (AEFT) on site at Angels Gate Cultural Center for groups of 60 students per visit. An AEFT consists of an educational tour of our galleries that is followed by an arts-making experience inspired by the art in the galleries. AIC artist-teachers lead all Arts Exploration Field Trips

Teacher education is another important educational component of Artists In Classrooms. Professional training and experience-based workshops are offered on site for both artist-teachers and classroom teachers periodically throughout the year.

Artist In Classrooms is funded through government, corporate, and foundation grants, as well as private donations.
