Passed by Congress in 2010, House Resolution 275 designates the week beginning with the second Sunday in September as 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. This year's National Arts in Education Week has been officially proclaimed by ArtsNC arts educator partners: NC Art Education Association, NC Dance Education Organization, NC Music Educators Association, and NC Theatre Arts Educators.
ArtsNC reminds us all to take this opportunity to appreciate and celebrate the passage of a North Carolina Arts High School Graduation Requirement and the creation of Recommendations for Arts Education as North Carolina reopens schools, now cited in official state guidance. ArtsNC is also grateful for the hard work and accomplishments of our statewide network of arts advocates supporting Comprehensive Arts Education. The work of arts education advocacy is never done.
Look for #dcsarts across social media as we celebrate our arts education programs!
