Bring A Professional Artist to Your School

The typical PAS program consists of 10 classroom hours scheduled at a classroom’s convenience.

The cost to your school is $500 – half of the total cost – for the basic 10 hour program. This covers teacher recruitment, planning and supplies as well as the teaching artists’ time in the classroom. Our donors and sponsors support the other half of the program cost.
