The Indiana Arts Commission’s Partnering Arts, Community, and Education (PACE) arts integration research program is establishing a model for elementary schools and artists / arts organizations to achieve long-term, in-depth, and sustainable partnerships in the classroom. PACE matches teaching artists with classrooms for focused, year-long arts experiences aligning with academic curriculum, and integrated into classroom literacy activities.
Recent data collected indicates arts integration helps improve student attitudes and may be positively influencing literacy development. PACE research is ongoing and expanding into three new schools this year for a total of nine partnerships statewide that are impacting 771 students at critical stages of academic development. We applaud you for playing a significant role in this groundbreaking initiative.
