We had a GREAT time last Friday at ADE’s first annual Summer Arts Education Institute for K-12 Teachers and Teaching Artists! We had over 100 Arts Educators, Teaching Artists, Administrators, and Leaders in attendance! Participants enjoyed learning about Cultivating Creativity in the Classroom, building sustainable community partnerships to extend learning, and leveraging the POWER of student voice in lesson planning and performance.
Special thanks to the Alice Cooper’s Teen Solid Rock Teen Center for sponsoring the event and Chick-fil-A for providing our lunch!
PD Certificates are available through the Event Management System. Stay tuned for the NEXT ADE ArtsEd Opportunity!

Alyssa McMichael, dance teacher at Apollo High School in Glendale, was awarded the 2018 Katherine Lindholm Lane Arizona Dance Educator of the Year Award at the annual Arizona High School Dance Festival at Raymond S. Kellis High School, March 24th. This award honors a teacher for demonstrating support for and contributing to the larger dance education community, inspiring students and colleagues through example, enthusiasm and encouragement, and advocating for quality dance education and the arts. Alyssa exemplifies these characteristics in her teaching and by her involvement in the dance community.
Congratulations from ADE’s Office of Arts Education!
From Natalie Marsh, Director of Arts Education- Scottsdale Arts:
In celebration of this, we are collaborating with the City of Scottsdale on a video contest asking high school students attending a school in Scottsdale or residents of Scottsdale to tell us why the arts are important to our community. The award is pretty awesome – $500 cash, membership to Scottsdale Arts, accolades at a city council meeting and free breakfast!
Please share this contest with all your high school teachers, parents of high school students, and high school students! We want to hear how the arts have impacted them and why the arts make Scottsdale the best. Contest closes on March 23, 2018.
Thank you for spreading the word!
