Description: Now in its sixteenth year, the Artists-in-Schools Program (AISP) is The Print Center’s award winning visual arts youth educational program with an established reputation for its innovative structured, yet flexible, curriculum model and capacity to deliver high quality arts instruction. AISP offers completely self-contained year-long classes providing artist-educators, curricula, all course materials and field trips to students in Philadelphia public high schools. Classes meet twice weekly for ten weeks per semester, to supplement and enhance existing art education programs in participating schools. Curricula are based on exhibitions at The Print Center and include instruction in contemporary art and theory to provide a framework on which to learn the essentials of photography and printmaking using a wide range of tools and techniques. Artwork produced in the residencies is featured on The Print Center’s website: http://printcenter.org/aisp/.
