Welcome to the Arts Education Month!
It began as an idea—Arts Education Week—and bloomed into a month-long celebration nourished by diverse partners and supporters. Now, everyone can be part of the action. May is Washington State’s Arts Education Month, a time to celebrate and strengthen arts education in our schools for all students.
Arts Education Month is more than symbolic. It’s more than just a proclamation to hang on the wall. It is a month-long public celebration of the creative endeavors taking place in our schools and in our community arts organizations. It is a way to show the community – as well as policy makers – how the arts are making a difference in education.
This is why ArtsEd Washington invites you to join the statewide public awareness campaign in May.  Community participation is critical to the success of Arts Education Month. Our dedicated partners include Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) Arts and Washington State Arts Commission. Join us in the efforts to:
  • Acknowledge the powerful role of arts education in the lives of our students, schools, communities, and workforce.
  • Promote the arts in our schools as integral to a complete education.
  • Take action to provide equitable access to the arts for all students.
  • Celebrate the arts and its contribution to humankind.
Join our Cadre of Arts Advocates (CADRE of Arts Advocates – ArtsEd Washington) to receive regular updates and become a part of the community working together on building grassroots arts advocacy movement across the state.
