National Arts in Education week

Americans for the Arts is celebrating National Arts in Education Week! During this week, the field of arts education joins together in communities across the country to tell the story of the impact of the transformative power of the arts in education.

Watch this video from Gabrielle Ruiz, one of the stars of the CW’s “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.”

 

Get involved by sharing your story on social media with the hashtag #BecauseofArtsEd! There’s also a petition to Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos asking her to support the arts.
