Artists in Schools (formerly ArtsSmarts Saskatchewan) offers schools a chance to enhance arts-related activities that are linked to educational outcomes through partnerships with professional artists. The aim of the program is to expand access to meaningful artistic activities, increase student engagement in learning, cultivate cross-disciplinary learning skills and attitudes, and foster a lifelong interest in the arts.
Artists in Schools is a joint initiative of the Saskatchewan Arts Board, SaskCulture Inc., and the Government of Saskatchewan through the Ministry of Education. It is supported by funding provided by the Saskatchewan Arts Board, the Government of Saskatchewan through the Ministry of Education, and the Saskatchewan Lotteries Trust Fund for Sport, Culture and Recreation.
