Bringing diverse arts to schools


Arts of the U.P. is an organization dedicated to supporting the arts in public schools across the Peninsula Student group members volunteer with several other organizations related to the arts, such as the Michigan School Band and Orchestra Association. Arts of the U.P. also hosts its own arts-related events at NMU.

“We will be supporting creative writing and poetry in the month of February. March is music and theater month, and April is visual arts month. Each of these months will have an event held to support the corresponding art,” Hornat said.
