Where Arts and Education Come Together

Arts in Education (AIE) promotes learning in and through the arts throughout Adams, Franklin, Fulton and York counties. Schools, community organizations and senior centers are invited to collaborate with highly trained teaching artists to custom-design learning experiences for their site.

Through our partnership with the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, the Cultural Alliance powers artists to help others explore and develop their creativity and artistic skills in a variety of educational, community and institutional settings.

Since 1995, PCA, AIE has demonstrated unprecedented ability to expand arts in education across the Commonwealth. PCA’s mission is to foster excellence, diversity and vitality of the arts in Pennsylvania and to broaden the availability and appreciation of those arts throughout the Commonwealth.

How the Cultural Alliance Powers: Education

Imagine learning the core components of geometry using yoga, or visual art, or using professional level photography skills to learn what it would have been like historically, to be an immigrant coming to America in the 1800’s.

Thanks to our EITC donors, since September 1, 2022 the Cultural Alliance of York County has:

  • Completed 45 residencies across all 4 counties we serve
  • Over 200 days of artists working directly with the community and over 5,000 participants served
  • Four new teaching artists added to our roster
  • Put $33,699 of income directly in the pockets of local teaching artists
