Artist in the Classroom

Ventura County Arts Council Artists in the Classroom (AIC) is the only multi-disciplinary arts residency program available to every K-8 school in the county. AIC offers eight week residencies in dance, music, poetry, visual and performing arts.

Our professional artist educators have taught children of all ages. When a classroom teacher selects a residency, the teaching artist tailors the eight-week program to the appropriate grade level. Many instructors bring a multi-cultural and historical awareness to their lessons, helping students gain an understanding of their own and other cultures, past and present.
