Indianapolis Arts Council Launches New Arts Education Website

Indianapolis Arts Council Launches New Arts Education Website

The Arts Council of Indianapolis launched a new website to provide teachers and parents with a directory of arts programming in central Indiana.

The Arts Council director of education partnerships Ernest Disney-Britton says there’s often a communication barrier between teachers and arts organizations. 

"What we needed was some sort of Angie’s List for arts education," Disney-Britton says "Where teachers could evaluate the programs of the arts organizations and other teachers could see what those evaluations were." 

The new website filters programs by categories including artistic discipline, ages served and subject.

As of Friday, there are around 100 programs listed. 

Through January 13, the Arts Council is providing transportation grants to central Indiana schools that apply. The grant is first-come-first-serve and would fund up to $500 in transportation costs.
