Artists Working in Education, Inc. (A.W.E.) was founded in 1998 by a group of local art educators, museum curators, and artists concerned about decreases in funding for the arts in education both locally and at the state level.
A.W.E.’s mission is to provide youth in the Milwaukee area with arts enrichment programs to enhance human potential, advance learning and cultivate community.
Its two main initiatives are the Truck Studio mobile art program and the School Studio artist-in-residence program. A.W.E. arts learning experiences encourage children to become inquisitive, creative, flexible, imaginative, confident.
