Through the ArtsSmarts program, Island artists work with teachers and students on projects that integrate arts activities into non-arts school subject areas. Students combine their learning of core subjects such as math and languages with the help of visual and literary arts, dance, music and/or theatre. The seven Island schools involved in the 2011 ArtsSmarts program are Stratford Elementary, Sherwood Elementary, École Saint Augustin, Elm Street School, Kensington Intermediate Senior High School, École-sur-Mer and Gulf Shore School.
ArtsSmarts Prince Edward Island is administered and funded by the Department of Tourism and Culture and the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development. ArtsSmarts Prince Edward Island is a partner of the National ArtsSmarts Network. The ArtsSmarts Coordinator for PEI is Cecile Arsenault.
