Arts Education

Chautauqua Institution is committed to providing opportunities for students and teachers to engage in meaningful arts learning experiences in Chautauqua County schools and beyond. These experiences promote self-expression and discovery through engagement with the performing, visual and literary arts for grades Pre-K through 12. These programs cultivate relationship building throughout the community and provide immersive, engaging activities that center students as artists.  

Programs below are eligible to be funded in Chautauqua County in part through the Erie 2 BOCES Arts in Education Co-Ser. Contact Suzanne Fassett-Wright at for details about fee structure and program availability.
