Yes, St. Louis IS a leader in Arts Education!

Interchange, a collaborative program of COCA, provides artists to schools to help teachers integrate the arts in their classrooms.

Interchange supports arts-integrated learning through:

  • Professional development of teachers, administrators and teaching artists.  This is done through on-site coaching, a summer institute, school-year workshops and opportunities to participate in national arts education programs.
  • Programmatic and financial support of partnerships between arts and cultural organizations and classroom teachers.  The most important work Interchange does is to facilitate the in-classroom work of SLPS teachers in tandem with teaching artists.
  • Documentation and evaluation of arts integration.  Learning is not just happening in the classroom, it’s built into the Interchange model.
  • Advocating for arts education.  Interchange partners with principals, teachers, parents, and community members to ensure arts education remains an integral part of each child¹s education in the St. Louis Public Schools.

And you can get involved!

Teachers

  • Engage your students in learning by integrating the arts into your lesson plans.
  • Seek partnerships with arts specialists and teaching artists to help you strategize ways to bring the arts into your classroom.

Parents

  • Get involved in your child’s education ‹ join your local parent-teacher organization, and ask for arts integration in your child’s school.
  • Become an arts active parent. Bring arts and culture into your child’s life as often as possible.
  • Sign up for email alerts and updates.

Students

  • Take advantage of the many cultural opportunities in your school and the community.
  • Have an open mind. Don’t be afraid to try creative ways to learn new things.

Arts organizations

  • Become a member of Interchange and join other area arts and cultural organizations supporting arts-integrated learning in the St. Louis Public Schools.
  • Develop a cadre of teaching artists who want to partner with classroom teachers.

Everyone

  • Advocate for the arts in public schools. Contact the Special Administrative Board and your elected representatives about the importance of arts education and arts-integrated learning.
  • Provide financial support for arts integration through Interchange.
