Giving equitable access to high impact arts-in-education programing for students from Title 1 Schools.


We serve students.

Imagination Fort Worth crafts its programs for a culturally diverse population of learners. We accommodate learning differences and physical needs. We meet kids where they are and create opportunities for students with varying needs and goals. From elementary school all the way to high school seniors, we have a programs built for all ages and diverse backgrounds. We provide access to arts in education experiences for those with least access.

We serve the arts.

Imagination Fort Worth is raising the next generation of arts patrons by creating positive, energizing first encounters with quality artists, teaching artists, museums, theaters, libraries, and other cultural organizations.

We serve teachers.

We support educators with professionally prepared curricula tied to specific state education standards that outline exactly what students should know and be able to do. We inspire teachers with field trips and programs that integrate the arts with all areas of learning and unleash the creative potential and spark the imaginations of their students.

We serve schools.

The crux of our program service meets needs in Tarrant County Schools Title One Schools. However, Covid provided us the opportunity to expand service reach via virtual programming. We continue successfully providing arts in education access to communities large and small all over Texas, United States and the world at large. Field trips aren’t cheap, and budget-sensitive school districts have many needs to meet. Imagination Fort Worth fills the gap with a wide range of free or low-cost programs.
