The Arkansas Affiliate of Young Audiences Arts for Learning

The mission of Arkansas Learning Through the Arts (ALTTA) is to improve student achievement by integrating cultural arts into the educational experience in order to ignite students’ interest in learning. The organization offers programming that: changes the mindset of students for learning; offers arts experiences that are not readily available to schools; and demonstrates a lasting model for creative teaching.  

ALTTA’s In-School Residencies are tied to thematic units adopted state-wide by grade level, which connect directly to Arkansas Department of Elementary and Secondary Schools' Literacy and Fine Arts Frameworks. Principals and teachers can choose from a culturally diverse selection of curriculum-based experiences, with ALTTA’s professional teaching artists engaging and inspiring young people to learn by way of dance, music, poetry, theatre, and visual arts. 

Currently, ALTTA primarily serves counties in Central Arkansas and the Mississippi River Delta and is reaching out to additional areas of the state.
