Partnership Programs

Artistry partners with schools, social service organizations, and other nonprofits and businesses to bring high quality arts experiences to people of all ages and backgrounds throughout the region. We tailor all progrmas to meet our partners' needs and learning objectives, and all programs are led by skilled teaching artists who create a supportive environment.

Following are some of the ways we serve groups through partnership programs. To learn more about developing a one-time or ongoing arts experience at the Bloomington Center for the Arts or at your location, please contact Director of Education Leah Hughes at 952-563-8745 or
