ADE and the AZ Arts Commission releases the AZ Arts Ed. Data Project

What an amazing week we have journeyed through together! We have introduced our new Arts Education Specialist, sent our Director to the National Arts Education Partnership Conference in Indiana, we’ve highlighted celebrations happening in our schools, and now we are pleased to unveil the Arizona Arts Education Data Project!  This interactive dashboard is the most comprehensive analysis to-date of Arizona Student access and participation in Arts Education courses. Interested in learning about Arts Education access in your county? The dashboard can tell you that. What about 5th grade enrollment in dance at your district? The dashboard can tell you that. For the first time, we can clearly analyze student access and participation in the arts by geographic location, economical demographic, by artistic discipline- for EVERY school in Arizona!

Interested in the full Executive Summary, or would you rather just look at the highlights? Either way, we are working hard to better frame the Arts Education landscape as it truly exists in each of our Arizona schools.

We are very proud to share this information with you, adding to transparency and choice for you and your student(s).

Happy National Arts in Education Week form the ADE Office of Arts Education,

Happy 2018 National Arts in Education Week!

September 9th – September 15th is National Arts in Education Week! Join ADE and over 500 organizations across the NATION as we celebrate the Arts in Education!

We would LOVE to know how YOU are participating!! What events are happening at your school/organization? Let Americans for the Arts know what you’re up to so that your celebrations can be added to the National Map! Please fill out this form to be added to the conversation and receive important updates throughout the week. Email our ArtsEd Inbox so that the ADE can #Spotlight your event!

How can you participate in National Arts in Education Week?!? Easy!! Here are a few ideas:

  • Host or attend celebrations and register them through the ArtsMeet National Event Calendar. More than 500 celebrations are anticipated to occur around the country;
  • Advocate. An essential part of National Arts in Education Week is leveraging the celebration for advocacy to decisionmakers. Spread the word about two easy advocacy opportunities: sign the petition to Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos about arts education policy; and submit an op-ed to your local paper;
  • Share your story on social media and help bring visibility to the issue of arts education. Use the hashtags #ArtsEdWeek, #BecauseOfArtsEd, and #AzArtsEd to share stories of the impact of arts education on individual lives. Tag Arizona Citizens for the Arts on Facebook, and azcitizens4arts on Twitter – they will rebroadcast what you’re doing during arts education week!

Arizona Arts Education is very vibrant, with intentional energy being cultivated for a collective impact on policy, access, and participation.  Join us and Americans for the Arts as we celebrate, advocate, and participate in the well-rounded and artful education of Arizona students!
