For over 30 years the Huntington Arts Council has been working with local school districts to facilitate the multicultural, arts-in-education program, JOURNEY. The goal of the JOURNEY program is to promote and support the appreciation of cultural diversity and tradition through art. The program has been active in schools since its inception in 1985 when Chairperson Sandy Chapin, local area educators and local district administrators worked together to start this unique program. There are three major components; CTLE Cultural Arts Workshops for teacher professional development, Discovery Chests, and Visiting Teaching Artists to schools. For more information about our JOURNEY Program please contact Arts in Education Coordinator Gina Van Bell at 631-271-8423 ext. 14 or email@example.com.
