Partners in the Arts
Integrating the arts across PreK-12 educationPartners in the Arts was founded in 1994 to train educators to integrate the arts into their preK-12 curriculum, and provide support to implement school-based projects created in our courses, workshops and professional development sessions.
The program helps teachers create a transformative learning environment that engages all students, regardless of the subject area, and allows teachers to use their personal passions and skills in the classroom. Partners in the Arts includes public schools in the City of Richmond and in Chesterfield, Goochland, Hanover, Henrico, and Powhatan counties, in addition to a number of private schools. The program is overseen by the associate dean of the School of Professional and Continuing Studies and with guidance from a board of advisors.
In addition to funding school-based projects, Partners in the Arts offers an annual five-day summer institute at the University of Richmond where preK-12 teachers learn how to integrate the arts into all classrooms. Register below for the keynote presentation by this summer's special guest instructor, Lynda Barry.

- Join Agecroft Hall and friends in celebrating Shakespeare’s 451st birthday! The Bard himself will be in attendance for this playful day of merriment, games, acrobatics, dances, songs, and sonnets. All outdoor activities are FREE! (House tours available at regular admission.) Agecroft Hall is a Tudor manor house that stood in Lancashire, England from the late 15th century until 1926. It was bought by Virginia businessman T.C. Williams Jr., dismantled, and shipped across the Atlantic to the banks of the James River, where it was rebuilt and refurbished at 4305 Sulgrave Road, RVA 23221 to suit the needs of a 20th-century home while still preserving much of its architectural character.
