Learning Through Art

Welcome To Learning Through Art

Learning Through Art (LTA), an artist residency program, cultivates student creativity by designing sustained, process-oriented art projects that support learning across the curriculum. The program sends experienced teaching artists into New York City public schools, where they collaborate with classroom teachers to develop and facilitate art projects integrated into the school curriculum. Read more about LTA's history and structure.

This area of the website provides in-depth information about current LTA residencies as well as useful resources for educators, including questions to facilitate discussion of works of art and detailed lesson plans for exploring art projects and techniques in the classroom.
