Happy Arts in Education Week, September 9-15

September 10, 2018

Celebrate!

Starting in 2010 Arts in Education Week was designated by Congress with the House Resolution 275. The resolution names the week beginning with the second Sunday in September as National Arts in Education Week. This provides all of us in the field of arts education and our supporters the chance to celebrate and communicate why arts education is essential to the development of all learners.

We see first hand the power of arts education every day in our classrooms and understand how transformative the arts are. Others aren’t as fortunate as we are so by sharing your stories we can help people understand.
What can you do?
  1. Celebrate. Host a celebration in your community, whether big or small, an existing event, or a new one. Download and use the shared logo and be sure to register your event on ArtsMeet, a national arts event calendar. You can even purchase #ArtsEdWeek swag in our Bookstore. Be sure to download the 5 Ways to Partner Packet for other ideas of how to celebrate in your community!
  2. Advocate. Work with your elected officials and decision-makers to share the value of the arts in education. Whether a mayor, principal, or U.S. Congressman, check out sample resolutions and videos, send an op-ed to your local newspaper, and use the Arts Education Navigator—an online tool with six action steps to crafting a personal advocacy plan. Be sure to sign the petition encouraging Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos to support the arts!
  3. Participate. Share your story in the social media campaign, #BecauseOfArtsEd, to bring national visibility to the issue of arts education. See below for more information and download the Social Media How To Guide. Also, be sure to attend and invite friends to the Facebook Event.
