Cultural Arts Representatives

Cultural Arts Representatives are partners we rely on to coordinate arts programming for their schools and serve as the primary liaison between the school and an artist.  Cultural Arts Representatives are either parent members of the school’s PTA or teachers who volunteer their time for the benefit of the school.  Previous arts experience is not required to serve as a Cultural Arts Representative. All training is provided.
