Arts Ed Partnership

The Arts Education Partnership (AEP) is dedicated to securing a high quality arts education for every young person in America. A national coalition of more than 100 education, arts, cultural, government, and philanthropic organizations, AEP was created in 1995 by the National Endowment for the Arts and the U.S. Department of Education and is administered by the Council of Chief State School Of cers and the National Assembly of State Arts Agencies.


School principals play a key role in ensuring every student receives a high-quality arts education as part of a complete education. In a time of shrinking budgets and shifting priorities, AEP’s practical guide, which was commissioned by the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities, provides three recommendations for keeping the arts strong in their schools:

  • Establish a school-wide commitment to arts learning.
  • Create an arts-rich learning environment.
  • Rethink the use of time and resources.

Symposium in D.C.


The Arts Education Partnership (AEP), a center within Education Commission of the States, is hosting the 2017 AEP State Policy Symposium on Saturday, March 18, 2017, at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C. Continuing the momentum for implementation of the 2020 Action Agenda for Advancing the Arts in Education, this annual event is an opportunity for national and state-level leaders to roll-up their sleeves and focus on the implications of pressing federal and state education issues for the arts in education.

The Arts Education Partnership, along with Americans for the Arts and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, will welcome more than 100 national and state leaders from the arts, business, cultural, education, philanthropic and public sectors for a daylong conversation about the intersection between the arts and education policy. In addition to learning from engaging keynote and plenary presentations on the education landscape, participants will gain insights from experts through in-depth workshops on tools and strategies for expanding access to and participation in the arts in their own states.


Integrating the Arts Across the Curriculum Webinar

July 1, 2011

Wednesday, July 19, 2011 2 p.m. EDT

Sandra Ruppert, director of the Arts Education Partnership and Shana Habel, dance demonstration teacher, Los Angeles Unified School District and co-president of the California Dance Education Association will present Integrating the Arts Across the Curriculum webinar.

Many arts advocates suggest integrating dance, music, theater, and visual arts across the curriculum holds great promise to enhance student learning—and revitalize the arts in public schools.

Although not a new idea, teaching “through” the arts appears to be gaining a stronger foothold, proponents say. Examples span the country and content areas. Take dance, where the art form has been used in a Baltimore County, Md., school to help teach scientific concepts like photosynthesis, and in suburban Minneapolis to bring the Underground Railroad to life.

A White House advisory panel recently made the case for “reinvesting” in arts education and drew special attention to arts integration, suggesting that it can boost student motivation and provide both academic and social benefits.

This webinar will explore the potential of bringing together the arts with other subjects in a mutual learning experience and point to promising examples, as well as the challenges to ensure that such efforts achieve their academic goals.
