Welcome to the Hartford Performs Program Database!

The Hartford Performs Database is a resource for all participating schools to view the arts integration programs available to them through Hartford Performs for the 2016-2017 school year. Every program in the database has gone through a vetting process and has been chosen to be listed in the database based on the program’s alignment to learning standards in both core curriculum subjects and the arts. Each program in the database has been recommended to be listed by certified arts instructors, classroom teachers, the HPS district’s Director of Arts and Hartford Performs staff. If you have any questions about any Hartford Performs programs, navigating the database or Hartford Performs, check out our FAQ page or contact our Programming Director, Jaclynn Hart at jhart@hartfordperforms.org.

Hartford Performs staff looks forward to meeting you during your school’s Grade Level Program Team meetings in the fall but in the meantime, check out the program database and see what programs you can bring to your students this school year!

What's the Difference Between Hartford Performs Access, Alignment and Integration Programs?
Access Alignment Integration
Definition Short-term exposure and/or experiences in an art form. These experiences may connect to learning in other curriculum areas but students take on the role of an audience member or observer. This includes: offsite or in-school performance(s) or museum tours. Single or multi-day workshop that connects art forms to English, Math, Science or Social Studies and bridges ideas between the disciplines.
This may also include a performance that has a follow-up workshop with students.
An approach to teaching in which students construct and demonstrate understanding through an art form. Students engage in a creative process which connects an art form and another subject area and meets evolving objectives in both.
Integration programs are short-term residencies that require planning time and collaboration with classroom teachers.
