Each year the Arts-in-Education program plays a larger part in the schools as teachers include more cultural arts activities in their curriculum. The Arts-in-Education program is sponsored by the Illinois Arts Council Agency, Tracy Family Foundation, The Community Foundation of the Quincy Area, Stillwell Foundation, and QSFA.
Studies show that students who participate in fine arts classes as well as extra-curricular fine arts activities score higher grade point averages and have better attendance records than the general student body.
Arts Quincy Resources Includes:
In taking advantage of Arts Quincy's programs, area schools visited local museums, enlisted the services of many local artists, and brought in a variety of other artists from outside Adams County.
