Online Learning & Arts Education Resources

Dear Arts Education Community,

March quickly turned from a focus on the celebration of dance, music, media arts, theatre, and visual arts in our schools to the navigation of a global health pandemic for the well-being of our students & communities. In the midst of all this, we need the arts and the ways they foster connection, joy, social critique, collaboration, and creativity more than ever.

As we navigate new ways of engaging with arts education, we wanted to share with you all some wonderful landing pages of resources that have emerged to support arts educators during this time. These include:

  • ADE Title IV-A‘s page for Online Learning & Enichment Resouces in Arts, Connectivity, EdTech, Health, PE, Professional Development, and Virtual Field Trips.
  • State Education Agency Directors of Arts Education‘s page of Arts Instructional Resources in the five artistic disciplines (Dance, Media Arts, Music, Theatre, and Visual Arts).
  • Arts Education Partnership‘s page for COVID19 Resources shared by partner organizations.

Additionally we are sharing the Arizona Department of Education‘s COVID19 Guidance page & The Arizona Commission on the ArtsCOVID19 Resources page for artists & arts organizations.

Above all please prioritize your own well-being during this time. In an NPR article describing Panic-gogy (Panic + Pedagogy) Robin DeRosa Director of the Open Learning & Teaching Collaborative at Plymouth State University describes this emerging educational pedagogy:

“The real skill that Panicgogy requires is sort of a critical compassion, if you will, the ability to look at the situation as it really is. Figure out what’s going on, how you can operate within that, and how you can be compassionate in that as well.”

Take good care of each other,

Dustin & Haley ADE Arts Education
