Port Chester Council for the
Arts, Inc. (PCCFA) is a
not-for-profit arts organization based in Port Chester, New York.
Since 1981, the PCCFA has been a pioneer in developing and providing high
quality arts programs that encourage cooperation among all segments of the
community through a variety of shared artistic experiences for children and
NATIONAL ARTS IN THE SCHOOL DAY to raise awareness of the vital role
the arts play in every young person's education. PCCFA piloted this
program with the goal of giving children in grades K-12 nationwide the
opportunity to experience and be inspired by all kinds of creative arts in
NATIONAL ARTS IN THE SCHOOL DAY is modeled on the PCCFA's successful 15-year-old Literacy
Through the Arts program, in which professional artists teach students
in grades K-5 such varied subjects as sign language, theatre, dance, music,
painting and crafts, all integrated within the New York State standards for
literacy in each grade.
