Artist Residencies

Some artists bring their talents directly to local schools. These performances or master classes help us reach many additional area students through the arts—allowing them to ask questions of the artists and get to know them as people as well as performers.

Scholarship Program

Purdue Convocations wants to ensure that every student has access to performing-arts events. Our scholarship program helps remove economic barriers that prevent students from attending Convocations events by providing scholarships that subsidize tickets and transportation to student matinees and placing artist residencies in schools with demonstrated economic need.

Resources for Teachers


From the Adjective Monster to Weather and Wind, ARTSEDGE offers lesson plans that will help you integrate arts across the curriculum. These fully developed lesson plans, teaching how-tos, links, artist interviews and many other features are a wealth of information, support sites and teaching research available to teachers free of charge.

The Artful Classroom

This blog is a place where teachers can look for sources and resources, share ideas, learn about what other schools and teachers are doing and discuss the arts integration approach to teaching.
