Hartford Performs brings visiting artists into Hartford Public Schools to teach curriculum in creative new ways and bring students out to area arts venues to experience professional dance, music, theater and museums.

We also provide Hartford teachers with professional-learning programs to integrate art techniques in their classrooms which help students kids learn and develop.

Over 12,500 students in all 30 PreK-Grade 8 public schools in our city benefit from our system each year.
