Dear Arts Educators,
As 2021 comes to an end, we pause to reflect on the past year. Arts Educators faced new and continuing challenges. Arts Educators also exhibited unparalleled resiliency as demonstrated by the unique performances and art works created. We know that arts classrooms serve as a bedrock, providing students with spaces for meaningful personal and inter-disciplinary connections, and as an outlet for much needed emotional expression. Thank you for your support of the arts and your ongoing commitment to supporting a well-rounded education for every student to achieve their potential.
Included in this newsletter, we spotlight the final call for ESSA Student Showcase Submissions, the application for ESSER III State Discretionary Funds, student art on display at the US and a wealth of opportunities for students and educators.
Yours in collaboration,
ADE Arts Education
