CREATIVITY = LEADERSHIP

You’ve worked in private schools for years and are always looking for ways to bring the classroom to life. As an educator, you’d love to help make your school creative, experiential, and connected to the community-at-large.

Most of all, you want your community to feel validated, supported, and seen. You want them to take pride in themselves and our collective future, and you understand that creative problem solving is a skill that the professionals of the future will need to possess.

ART FOR YOUR PRIVATE SCHOOL

  • What if your private school radiated color & energy?
  • What if your facility had an art gallery in it?
  • What if your school held Artist Workshops?
  • What if your students engaged with professional art every day?

Private schools are filled with incredible educators who create learning and community daily. What’s more, you rely on great partners, amenities, and experiences to round out an incredible school experience.

At IPaintMyMind, we love being one of those partners, as we take great pride in supporting children and leaders liek you. We look forward to creating learning experiences that support children and families for years to come, and are proud to be a part of that creative spirit in various school communities over the past 5 years.

Every art exhibition we curate into a school supports kids, families, and leaders like YOU who are devoted to making your academic offerings as engaging and catalytic as possible.

Let’s do this!

Gallery + Curriculum + Workshop

An Art Exhibition, Curriculum and Workshop for Your School, How Sweet Is That?

Over the last 5 years, we have faithfully grown an art collection that focuses on limited edition art prints, allowing a breadth of content and technique to reach new communities.

Join our mission by bringing framed art, curriculum supplements, and a workshop to your school, while helping IPMM expand our mission by offering more free art to schools that can’t afford it. Your school will have it’s very own art gallery and an opportunity to give back to a less fortunate school.

We also deliver our 8-page Art Guide as a tool for any teacher to engage the students from the perspective of their subject matter.

We’ve had the honor of working with over 50 school communities thus far and can’t wait to connect with you!

How It Works

1. APPLY NOW + SITE VISIT

Start by hitting either of the APPLY NOW buttons on this page to give us more info on your community. There are a limited number of slots so first come, first served! At $4000 per year, it’s a reasonable investment for a program that will excite everyone!

We’ll follow up to discuss your school’s goals & schedule a time to visit your space, to think about the most impactful areas for an art exhibition.

2. SELECT YOUR ART

After deciding how much art will work for your space, our Curators and Program Managers will work with you to select art that fits your communities mission and personality.

Our collection reflects various types of art, both in content and medium. Our broad yet accessible collection really does have great options for most schools.

3. WE INSTALL YOUR ART

We frame, transport, and install your customized art exhibition which you keep for the entire school year, creating an ongoing relationship that elevates, connects, and inspires.

Each year, we rotate the art for you and keep the partnership going for years to come!

4. ENGAGE, SUPPORT, CONNECT!

After installing your art, we stay in touch to support your engagement efforts and deliver our Art Guide, which includes art exercises, free art resources, field trip suggestions & more.

By staying in touch throughout your exhibition and highlighting other important arts resources, we aim to offer a really well-rounded program.

5. ARTIST WORKSHOPS

After using our Art Guide, we work with you to add programming touch points to your Shared Walls exhibition, further engaging your community around the process behind making the art they’ve been enjoying.

Namely, we offer an Artist Workshop where we invite the artist whose work is on display to present to a class or group. 

Art + Activation

Shared Walls™ is a rotating art gallery experience for your private school. It’s the only program of it’s kind that is building a large art collection for the purpose of displaying it where people work, learn, and play. It’s a really unique way for your school to enhance its space, bolster the curriculum offered, and connect kids with art being made by working artists.

At $4000 per year, it’s a super-affordable way to enhance your private school with programming and experiences that serve as mirrors and windows for your students: reflections of their experience and windows into others.

By inspiring children in the spaces they spend so much time in year after year, by making art truly accessible to them, we facilitate moments of creative inspiration that change the future.
