CEPA’s art programs in schools are tailored to specific classroom goals and designed with a particular focus or subject area. Interdisciplinary in nature, these projects expand upon students’ understanding of language arts, science, social studies and technology.
CEPA is proud to be providing arts education in schools through partnerships with Buffalo Public Schools, Buffalo Charter Schools, and Parochial Schools.
Read on to learn more about these and other CEPA art programs in schools.
A former student of one of CEPA’s many art programs in schools, Darron Whitsett participated in a photojournalism program where students created a newspaper from the ground up. He later joined ArtWorks!, one of CEPA’s after school programs. During the year-long advanced photography course, students worked with all of CEPA’s artists in residence—learning and working in their style, exhibiting their work throughout Buffalo, and producing a personal catalogue at the end of the program.Read other Testimonials

“CEPA’s art programs helped shape my life in so many positive ways. The things I learned then are the foundation of what I do today. They have afforded me the chance to travel and be creative, a dream I have had since I was a child . . . a dream that CEPA’s program gave me a framework for. For that I will be forever grateful.”
Working with teachers throughout the Buffalo Public School district, CEPA’s exciting art programs in schools educate students of all ages and abilities about the arts, as well as engage them with their community and their world.
CEPA also has had the privilege of working with a number of Buffalo charter schools, including Enterprise Charter School, Charter School for Applied Technologies, Buffalo Academy of Science Charter School, and our ongoing partnership with Tapestry Charter School.
