Arts Can Teach builds on the legacy of Learning Through the Arts, a program created in 1994 by Angela Elster and Toronto’s Royal Conservatory. This groundbreaking program brought artists and teachers together in classrooms across Canada, training and transforming through arts integration. One of the original pilot cities, Windsor embraced this artist-teacher partnership model, sustaining and growing since 1999.
Today, with many of Windsor’s original artists and an increasing demand, Arts Can Teach continues to expand, innovate, and develop its programming to support our region’s schools and community.
We also partner with local organizations to develop programs to engage and support newcomer Canadians and Windsor Essex multicultural and francophone communities.
