ARTreach Programs are facilitated by qualified and professional teaching artists. ARTreach adheres to low student teacher ratios to support higher impact and learning, and provide the attention the students need in order to be successful. Specialized programs are available for schools or communities in need. ARTreach Teaching artists are trained to work with at risk youth, special needs groups and all general populations. Schools, libraries and social service agencies that would like to bring a program to their students, seniors or clients can apply by Feb 1, 2011 for a grant from Texas Commission on the Arts. Grant information is found online at www.arts.state.tx.us
