ArtsEd Washington’s Work Highlighted in National Arts Education Partnership Guide
“The arts can open pathways of learning and encourage confidence in children. One of our fourth grade students has been visibly touched by the arts. She started the year hesitant to make new friends – uncomfortable to share orally with her class. Through her exposure to the arts, she smiles during dance activities and is starting to speak to adults – expressively.”
