Founded in 1992, Chicago Arts Partnerships in Education (CAPE)'s mission is to increase students' academic success, critical thinking and creativity through research-based, arts driven education.

CAPE inspires students' passion for learning by weaving visual and performing arts into their classroom lessons.

CAPE's unique approach to enhancing education with the arts better engages students, improves their understanding of class material, and boosts their grades. CAPE commissions rigorous, long-term research studies that show that integrating art into education continually improves students' critical thinking, self esteem, and confidence.
