Created in 1999 by the Port Chester Council for the Arts, the Literacy Through the Arts program fulfills President Obama’s call for a renewed commitment to arts education. This model, innovative program for K-5 students employs 15-20 visual and performing artists yearly in a variety of multi-week residencies, which coincide with New York State standards. The program serves all students in the Port Chester public elementary schools with a curriculum designed by education director Camille Linen and teachers from the school district.
