Arts Liaisons serve as the on-site school arts champion to lead arts programming and opportunities for their school communities, to connect students to resources in the arts, and to inspire their school community toward high-quality engagement of the arts.

Currently, Arts Liaisons are key to ensuring the successful implementation of the CPS Arts Education Plan through coordination with administrators, teachers, parents, students, teaching artists, arts organizations, community groups and others. Under the direction of the local school principal with guidance from the CPS Department of Arts Education, Arts Liaisons training is on-going.
