Art Resources in Teaching (A.R.T.), a not-for-profit organization, is Chicago's oldest and largest educational organization dedicated to providing vibrant visual arts residency programs to school children in the Chicago area. A.R.T. Teaching-Artists make art come alive for students and teachers by establishing connections between academic subjects and the visual arts with lively discussions, slide presentations, and hands-on art projects. Students learn about the relationship of art to history, culture, and creative expression through media such as painting, sculpture, photography, and others. Residencies range in length from one-day workshops to sixteen session residencies and are designed to address Chicago Academic Standards and Frameworks and IL State Goals and build children's capacity for creative thinking.

Description: Art Resources in Teaching
A.R.T. has made a positive impact on the lives of Chicago’s children for over one hundred years. A.R.T., originally named “The Chicago Public School Art Society”, was established in 1894 by Ellen Gates Starr, co-founder with Jane Addams of Hull House. In the early years, members of the Chicago Public School Art Society exposed students to reproductions of the great masters and advocated for arts education. Ms. Starr and Ms. Addams and their compatriots believed that all children, even those from low-income families, deserved access to art and culture. Over the years we have expanded upon that vision. Today A.R.T. is an innovator in exploring new ways to introduce the visual arts into the lives of students and teachers, including the development of new links between technology and the arts. We pioneer model programs that integrate the arts into instruction in core academic subjects (language arts, math, science and social studies). In the process we meet the needs of students as well as school administrators.
