Webinar tomorrow on report: Reinvesting in Arts Education: Winning America’s Future Through Creative Schools

On Thursday, February 2, at 5 PM ET, please join us for an insider’s look at Reinvesting in Arts Education: Winning America’s Future Through Creative Schools, the recent report released by the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities (www.pcah.gov).  The research clearly shows the effect of arts education on student academic achievement and creativity.  Additionally, among its specific recommendations, the report suggests the following…

•             Build robust collaborations among different approaches to arts education
•             Develop the field of arts integration
•             Expand in school opportunities for teaching artists
•             Utilize federal and state policies to reinforce the place of arts in K – 12 education
•             Widen the focus of evidence gathering about arts education

Of particular concern to our members, of course, is the issue of teaching artists and their role in the classroom.  Rachel Goslins, Executive Director of PCAH (http://www.pcah.gov/staff), will share more about the study, and answer questions in what will be a unique learning and discussion opportunity.  We encourage all officers and members to take advantage of this chance to engage Rachel, and to plan detailed questions about the subject matter in advance.

For more information about the study, please visit: http://www.pcah.gov/sites/default/files/PCAH%20Arts%20ED%20%20Report%20Summary%20&%20Recommendations_0.pdf.

Webinar registration is free.  https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/703925017

We look forward to having you with us on February 2 at 5 PM ET.
