An Arts Focus School is a school that incorporates the arts in its day-to-day teaching and learning through aesthetic education. Each semester, trained teaching artists work with each teacher and their students during a three-visit residency to connect arts processes related to the focus work of art.

Support for DeltaARTS is provided, in part, by the Arkansas Arts Council, an agency of the Arkansas Department of Parks, Heritage, and Tourism, and the National Endowment for the Arts.

This project is generously funded by Mid-America Arts Alliance, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the state arts agencies of Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Texas.
