Review AIA Evaluations
At Art Possible Ohio we root our work in experience and research. We know from rigorous evaluation that inclusivity, accessibility, and the arts have a tremendous positive impact on our community.
Students and educators think critically and creatively using a variety of art forms to engage with academic material in unique, unexpected and impactful ways.
Student needs at the core of the residency and adaptations are made throughout in order to reach learners of all abilities. In addition, students are equal partners in the learning experience and their interests and voices guide creative exploration.
Classrooms must include students with and without disabilities, where they are equal learners and peers support academic and social advancement.
Rooted in Authentic Learning
Students will increase arts, academic, and social-emotional knowledge and skills.
Enhanced by Collaborative Teaching
Classroom educators will gain confidence meeting the diverse needs of students and utilizing arts integration strategies.
Academic Content Standards-based
All residency plans use Universal Design for Learning strategies to address Ohio and/or national academic content standards.
Every school and classroom has different needs. Schools and artists schedule the residency when it works for them.
Generous support from funders like the Ohio Department of Education allow Art Possible Ohio to provide Adaptation, Integration, and the Arts free of charge.
