Expanding the walls of a classroom enables students to take advantage of Vermont's exceptional arts resources — fostering an appreciation for the arts and developing creative and critical thinking skills. Through the Artists in Schools program, the Arts Council awards grants to schools to hire and collaborate with artists in the classroom. Schools are also eligible to apply for Arts Impact Grants.

The Arts Council also maintains a Teaching Artist Roster and runs Poetry Out Loud, a national competition for high school students.
