Model Programs in the Arts. Case Studies which Demonstrate Unique Approaches to Increasing Arts Activities in the Schools.
This document presents case studies that point out unusual "delivery systems" for the arts which are not totally dependent on the school district structure. The case studies suggest creative ways communities and educational facilities can work together to increase the amounts of arts exposure and experiences available in the school through the sharing of resources. The four case studies include: (1) "Business and Industry for the Arts in Education, Inc. (BIFAE)," a business partnership; (2) "Art in the School, Inc.," with volunteers as teachers; (3) "Aileycamp," a community arts organization special initiative which uses dance to work with youth at risk of dropping out; and (4) "Center for Understanding the Built Environment," a partnership between the design professions, the school systems, and the arts. An explanation also is provided about the work of the American Institute of Architects focusing on awareness of the built environment. (EH)
