May is Arts Education Month in Washington state. Every community can be part of this month-long recognition of the relevance of arts learning for every student. Use our toolkit to raise awareness about arts education in your community: secure a city or county proclamation, use the arts education month logo on your website, and bring talking points to your school board meeting.
“Parents are increasingly able to articulate the benefits of the arts for their children. They see ways that the arts enhance their learning of academic subjects. They see the development of skills such as persistence, preparation and presentation. And, importantly, they see them developing a love of the arts!”
