OUR ARTISTS ARE EXPERIENCED
The artists we represent have cumulatively about 145 years of experience working in Arts in Education programming. They are extremely talented artists themselves and are especially gifted teaching artists.
AAE artist-educators have all been juried and accepted to the Massachusetts Cultural Council Creative Teaching Artist Roster, the only juried artist roster in the Commonwealth. Our artists have also been recipients of grants outside Massachusetts. We are registered with some New York State Board of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES) and are very willing to expand into new areas.
We believe very strongly in the importance of previewing arts in education programs. We encourage and welcome you to preview any of our artists. We do not list school performances on the web site since policy on visitors varies from school to school. Please call or email us to request contact information on time and locations closest to you. We can also provide you with regional references.
Please contact us for previewing opportunities.
