Motivating and exciting students to realize the full potential of who they can be.

Welcome to Artists in Schools! Artists in Schools is a grant program that funds short and long-term collaborations between artists and teachers to deliver arts-enriched learning experiences to Manitoba students in nursery to grade 12.


“The students came ‘out of their shells’. Students who are typically quite shy were excited to participate.”

—Kristen Harley, Domain School, 2019 project with Ardyth Johnson

“My two most reluctant readers/writers were engaged and enthusiastic about this project.”

—H. Valder, École Rivière Rouge, 2019 project with Karin Adams

“As students put it, the most rewarding part of working with Joan was the way she connected art to their life. It wasn’t just art for art’s sake – for the sake of something beautiful – but rather an attempt to get students to observe and think about their life, their environment and their culture.”

—Kathy Waldner, Decker Colony School, 2018-2019 project with Joan Trott
