FIND A GREAT EXPLORATION FOR YOUR CLASS

Welcome to ArtsDEEP, the education exploration portal provided by Culture Works through the generous support of The Dayton Foundation, the Mathile Family Foundation, Vectren/CenterPoint Energy Company, the Reynolds & Reynolds Associate Foundation, and Lockheed Martin.

 

Studies show that incorporating the arts into education leads to more engaged, higher-achieving students. The creative skills taught in the visual and performing arts can be applied in every subject area – from math and science to language arts. Fortunately, the Dayton Region is home to a multitude of arts organizations and individual artists who have developed arts-focused educational programming designed to enhance K–12 learning. ArtsDEEP provides an easy way for educators and school administrators to discover programs (or “Explorations”) ranging from field trips to workshops to in-school performances that align with individual classroom needs and support state curriculum standards.

There is no cost for organizations or individual artists to become Providers or list their Explorations on ArtsDEEP. All Providers and Explorations are reviewed by Culture Works prior to being listed on the site.

There is also no cost for educators or parents to view or search Explorations on ArtsDEEP. We require users to create profiles so we can easily track usage and the success of this portal in our reports to our generous funders.
