DiAE is unique in that they bring the programs to the schools with their professional artists. Their models of aesthetic, hands-on learning through the arts offers students of all ages to experience the creative decision making and critical thinking necessary to see beyond their circumstances and make connections to others and the world around them.
They provide public, private and charter schools with high quality, diverse arts programming that are aligned with statewide standards, and aligned with schools’ goals and curricula. They fulfill our mission with their three programs: Delaware Wolf Trap (DWT) for their earliest learners, K-12 residencies, and Professional Development for teachers.
