We make learning more exciting!
At DiAE, our mission is to  enhance the quality of education in Delaware by delivering integrated, multicultural arts experiences to students of all ages…inspiring the artist within.
We bring diverse arts programming and professional artists to schools and early learning centers throughout Delaware. Our models of aesthetic, hands-on learning through the arts give students an opportunity to experience the creative decision making and critical thinking necessary to see beyond their circumstances and make connections with the world around them.

K-12 Residency Program

We bring dance, music, theater and visual art professional teaching artists (TAs) and performers into schools throughout Delaware.

Delaware Wolf Trap (DWT)

Trains early childhood educators and engages pre-school children with arts-integration residencies that promote literacy and STEAM development.

Professional Development

Unique opportunities for teachers to explore different methods of integrating the arts into their educational environment and curriculum.
