Schools & Teachers

All artists are educators, all educators are artists. “We started Arts @ Large out of the trunk of a car!” In the very beginning our co-founders, Teri Sullivan and Kim Abler, drove to schools to make sure our teachers had art supplies, curriculum, and facilitators to keep creativity in the classroom. We continue to honor that legacy by placing Artist-Educators in the classroom in schools that would otherwise not be able to offer arts education.

Arts @ Large remains committed to building the confidence and competence of educators to use the arts to engage students in dynamic educational activities.

  • Artist Residencies
  • Field Trips
  • In-School Artist Residencies

Our commitment to lifelong learning starts with youth. These opportunities bring an awareness to creativity and instill an arts-integrated life.

We are proud to call Walker’s Point our home. With our Community Center and Paliafito Eco-Arts Park, these opportunities give a platform for all ages to tell their stories and share them through visual, literary, performing, and multimedia arts. Our mission furthers honoring the diversity that makes Milwaukee so great.
