2019 - The Center for Children and Youth


The Center for Children and Youth (CCY) at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville was established with a generous gift from the Windgate Foundation in 2008. Since then, CCY has implemented numerous arts integration outreach programs around the state. The ARTeacher Fellows Program provides intensive professional development to non-art secondary teachers on ways to incorporate the arts into their curriculum. CCY also presents the annual ARTful Teaching Conference for current and future educators to demonstrate the power of the arts to develop an engaging learning environment. CCY has partnerships with Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, The Walton Arts Center, the Brown Chair in Literacy, Arkansas A+ Schools and the Thea Foundation of Little Rock
