Welcome to Arts IQ
What is Arts IQ?
Arts IQ is Canada’s premiere online performing arts platform where professional artists from across Canada offer inspiring, engaging and educational virtual programs and performances for students of all ages.
We work with nationally recognized and award-winning school touring artists from a variety of artistic disciplines, including music, theatre, dance to storytelling.
Arts IQ Principles
Arts IQ virtual programs are guided around three basic principles to inspire students to become life-long creative learners: entertain, engage and educate.
We offer educators easy access to a roster of curated artists who have years of experience delivering professional arts performances and workshops in schools, theatres and festivals across Canada and internationally.
Arts IQ content is fresh and relevant, and also supports arts education in schools, which has been subject to budget cuts by school districts for many years. Arts IQ virtual programs support educators in their teaching practice and inspire students to learn through the arts.
Best of all, Arts IQ programs are virtually delivered into your classroom, and can be accessed anytime throughout the school year as soon as you sign up your class or school.
