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.
“Every time I observe an integrated arts lesson in a classroom, I find our highest levels of student engagement. Whether it is readers’ theater or a visual art component to math, reading, or social studies, many of our students who struggle with behavior or engagement issues rise to the top and then this carries over to the rest of their work.”
