Mission Statement

It is the mission of Arts for Learning Connecticut to engage participants of all ages and abilities in learning creatively through the arts.

Description

Arts for Learning Connecticut (AFLCT) has been providing unique and educational arts programming to the children of the state for nearly 40 years. By ensuring that students from every background and geographical location are given the chance to experience the arts firsthand, we help to create curious, critical and creative thinkers. AFLCT's roster of professional artists bring their passion and their expertise to school children every year through a wide variety of disciplines, which include the visual arts like photography and film making, the theater arts including acting and set design, the art of dance and movement, as well as many different types of music, a number of engaging and amazing storytellers and a wide variety of historical and cultural programs.

Part of our focus as a non-profit organization is on the underserved areas of the state, both urban and rural. Making sure that the deserving children of those areas get the same great art programs as the rest of the state is of critical importance. Just as art continues to be cut from the budgets of many area schools, studies that show how helpful art can be as regards academic achievement are stacking up. We need the help of the community to ensure that AFLCT can continue to bring high-impact, educational, arts-based experiences to every child in the state.
