Our MissionThe mission of the Arts360 is to bring teachers full circle, as learners, collaborators, facilitators, and reflectors, in order to improve instruction and impact student achievement by making arts-based and arts integrated learning a critical component of every child's educational experience.
In 2010, the Tennessee Arts Commission was awarded a second 4-year Arts Education Model Development and Dissemination Grant by the U.S. Department of Education in the amount of $1,062,000 to develop the Arts360 program,making it the only state arts agency to be awarded this grant twice.
Arts360 is currently being piloted by 4 Knox County public schools:
