About Project AIM

Explore our model, learn about our impact on students and teachers, see how we collaborate with communities, and meet our teaching artists.



The Arts Integration Mentorship Project (Project AIM) exists to explore the relationships between arts and academic learning, with the intention of creating opportunities for deeper, more meaningful, and more personally-relevant learning experiences in the classroom. 

Project AIM is based in the School of Fine and Performing Arts at Columbia College Chicago. The program is part of the college’s mission to strengthen community partnerships and student engagement in the city of Chicago.
