Serving educators for over 40 years, PIE has featured a wide range of educational experiences, including studio intensives, arts travel, cultural partnerships, custom programming and more.

Funded by a grant from the Library of Congress, our Teaching with Primary Sources (TPS) program at UArts creates professional development opportunities for K-12 educators in the greater-Philadelphia area that focus on teaching with primary sources in and through the arts. These courses are TUITION FREE for non-credit and credit is available at a significantly reduced rate. 

We are proud to partner with renowned cultural organizations, schools, and educational nonprofits as the credit-bearing institution for our Graduate Credit Partnership Courses

Our ArtsWeek tradition offers educators the chance to immerse in an art form with practicing artists to explore techniques, concepts, history of that art form, along with strategies for immediate turnaround with students.
