The arts engage students at multiple levels, make learning more interesting, and facilitate the absorption of new information. Therefore, The Arts Partnership believes strongly in promoting education in and through the arts for all ages. We provide many opportunities throughout the year for people of all ages to demonstrate their skills and deepen their knowledge and understanding of the arts.

This committee meets quarterly during the school year.

Professional Development Workshops
The Arts Partnership, Findlay City Schools, Hancock County Schools and The University of Findlay are members of the Partners in Education program of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Selected because of their demonstrated commitment to the improvement of education in and through the arts, the partnership team participates in nationally recognized collaborative efforts to make the arts integral to education. Through this program, professional development opportunities are offered to educators and pre-service educators to promote arts-infused learning in the classroom.
As coordinator of Youtheatre, The Arts Partnership is proud to carry on the tradition of providing opportunities for youth to experience all aspects of theatre while cultivating respect, self-worth, and teamwork skills. Most importantly, Youtheatre is a great opportunity for kids to make new friends and have loads of fun!
