In addition to working with over 1500 New York City public school students annually, Learning Through Art is dedicated to serving the field of arts education as a whole by conducting research that examines the skills students acquire when they discuss and produce art in a thoughtful, sustained way. LTA has been the recipient of two U.S. Department of Education Arts in Education Model Development and Dissemination (AEMDD) grants, for the years 2002–10, and a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts – Learning in the Arts for Children and Youth programs for 2011–13. In addition LTA was the focus of a study administered by students of the Creativity and Cognition Practicum at Columbia Teachers College in 2007.
