The East Side Arts Council actively looks for ways to employ local artists and to bring them into the classroom environment.


Arts InFusion is ESAC's award-winning program that uses the arts to boost learning of core curriculum.  Using an innovative working method, ESAC brings arts integration residencies and projects to East Side schools.  

We currently provide residencies for Phalen Lake Hmong Studies, Highwood Hills Academy, Hope Community Academy, Academia Cesar Chavez, and Creative Arts Secondary School.  

Types of arts include global dance, poetry, songwriting, music, puppetry, drawing and painting, and more!
