This project provides an arts education program that exposes young people to a high level of performing and visual arts in an educational setting. A primary goal of the program is to reach students in areas where school districts are unable to include sufficient arts education in annual budgets and families are financially unable to enrich their children's lives with exposure to the arts.
Tilles Center for the Performing Arts School Partnership program is modeled on and operates in partnership with the aesthetic education program of the Lincoln Center Institute. Tilles Center offers intensive arts exploration to students regardless of prior arts experience. The program provides a structured and integrated approach to arts education for students in grades K-12 and fosters partnerships between classroom teachers, arts specialists, and artists.The performance measures Long Island University will report on will be the students increased understanding of art and improved academic performance.NCA/NCF
