For Educators

We bring knowledge, support, and inspiration to teachers and administrators across the state.

First, we listen to your needs and priorities. Then we partner with you to put the tools in your hands.

We are committed to supporting your work by providing the following tools and information.

Our nationally recognized Principals Arts Leadership (PAL) program is designed to help schools implement and sustain high quality arts education programs.  Recognizing the school principal as the instructional leader in the arts, PAL offers the support necessary to maintain powerful arts programming year after year. Principals lead an arts team of teachers, parents, and community members to develop an ongoing annual plan for school arts programs.  PAL provides tools and a coach to help create the roadmap to success.

Our Common Core standards-aligned Art Lessons In the Classroom (ALIC) curriculum provides sequential learning in visual art for grades K-6. The lessons include key vocabulary, parent letters, teacher assessments, and connections with literacy and math concepts.  ALIC is supplemented with an online Curriculum Portal which includes a discussion forum, instructional videos and photos, and images of art from around the state that correlate with each lesson – bringing the museum masterworks to the classroom.

We work closely with our arts partners to bring you access to information and opportunities that help educators expand their understanding and expertise around arts learning.

Our comprehensive Calendar aggregates events from schools and organizations across the state to bring you the latest in arts education information, conferences, and learning opportunities.
