Welcome to Arts Are Elementary.

We’d love to tell you about who we are and what we do, but first a quick a quick announcement about our quickly approaching benefit concert.  Click to enlarge the image!  You can buy tickets online and it promises to be a fun and lively evening for a very good cause.  Hope we see you there.WilderDesignPoster_AAE2

Our Maine-based organization began in 1980 when a group of parents, artists and teachers sought to increase access to the arts in Brunswick’s elementary schools. Today AAE provides (at least) six artist residencies annually for every K-5 student in Brunswick (Coffin Elementary, Harriet Beecher Stowe Elementary and St. John’s Catholic School), giving students the unique opportunity to work one-on-one with professional artists and various art media.

Where residencies lend themselves to final performances, school assemblies, and/or art installations, we try to make these happen in collaboration with our artists. AAE is unusual because we tie the subject matter of our residencies to the Brunswick School Department curriculum for each grade.
