ARTS IN EDUCATION

The arts have a proven, substantial impact during formative years by improving academic performance, motor skills, confidence, creativity, focus, and collaboration. 

Honeywell Arts In Education is a collection of programs created for educators to reap these developmental benefits in the classroom. Programs are offered at little or no cost to the schools, allowing all students to participate regardless of socioeconomic situations.

Last year, Honeywell education programs provided nearly 42,000 arts-infused learning opportunities for students in 88 schools in 15 counties. With the recent addition of virtual offerings, the program is in an exciting state of exponential growth!

Arts In Education programs are made possible by the generous supporters of The Honeywell Foundation. To learn more about how you can support Education, contact Sarah See at 260.274.1431 or by email.

EDUCATION PROGRAMS

Steve Seskin: Bullying Prevention through Songwriting

Grammy-nominated Nashville songwriter Steve Seskin presents bullying prevention programs through the art of songwriting. Steve's interactive workshops and assemblies engage students by combining original songs (written by the students!) with an overlying message of acceptance and inclusion.

Visual Thinking Strategies

VTS is a nationally-recognized program that uses visual images and facilitated, student-centered discussions to practice the art of drawing inferences and supporting them with evidence. Participating in VTS helps students strengthen their critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and writing skills.  Learn more about VTS

Arts Integration

The Arts Integration approach refers to how something is being taught rather than what is being taught. Integration modules and resources adhering to curriculum standards are provided to participating educators.

Art Shows & Banner Contests

A complimentary component to school art classes, exhibits and contests featuring original student artwork are held throughout the school year. Exhibits are held in the Honeywell Center's Clark Gallery and on-site in schools, and include celebration receptions for students and families.

Student Matinees

Page-to-Stage Student Matinees bring literature to life by national touring companies. Matinees are held during the school day and take place on Honeywell theater stages.

Media Arts Program

The Media Arts Program is a collaboration between Heartland Career Center, a career and technical education program for high school students. Media Arts provides dual high school and college credit to students in video and sound production with a focus on preparing students for college and/or career.

Technical Theater Program

For more than a decade the Honeywell Foundation has collaborated with Heartland Career Center to provide a technical theater training program for students in grades 9-12 who want to learn the art of lighting, rigging, sound production and more. Students train in the state-of-the-art Ford Theater and even have the opportunity to work as crew for national tours.

Summer Arts Camps

Summer visual art and theatre camps are held each summer and led by qualified and talented artists and performers.
