About ArtsBridge


ArtsBridge is an outreach program open to any undergraduate or graduate College of Fine Arts student seeking a degree in Architecture, Art, Dance, Film, Music or Theatre.


UNLV ArtsBridge is an outreach program of the UNLV College of Fine Arts that partners fine arts students with at-risk elementary school students to teach biology, math, history and a variety of other topics using the arts.

Being an ArtsBridge scholar is an opportunity for you to design and teach a project in your area of study with a local classroom of students (Grades 1-5). The time commitment for participating in this program is about the same as one of your classes at UNLV. Scheduled teaching time equals 1-2 hours a week with extra time needed for planning and occasional meetings.


The UNLV ArtsBridge Program is semester-long program.


Presently, UNLV ArtsBridge partners with Paradise Elementary School and Ruby Thomas Elementary School, and has plans to expand its reach.


ArtsBridge Scholars earn $1,500 per semester. It is also a great way to share your passion with children in the community and gain teaching experience.
