This is the wrong time to cut arts education - CommonWealth Magazine

"With an ongoing global pandemic and heightened attention on racial injustice, students need arts education more than ever. The arts help students creatively engage with their classmates and communities, help combat isolation, and allow students to process their feelings and express themselves in ways that help them make sense of what’s happening in the world."

IN TIMES of great financial strain and uncertainty, arts education is often the first thing cut from the school curriculum. Indeed, several school districts across the Commonwealth have already laid off teachers and arts educators in the face of expected budget cuts and an unpredictable fall. Some d...

The economic impact of COVID-19 on our school systems means that arts education is at a higher risk than ever before. Help protect funding for arts education in your district by taking action with our Arts for All coalition!

I work at Gideon Welles School in Glastonbury, Ct. I saw your program for EA and it is very inspiring. I watched the interview and that was great too.

Hola fellow artists! Education First, in partnership with the NoVo Foundation and Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors are seeking applications from school-based educators (teachers, counselors, administrators, and other school staff) and district-level staff for initiatives that will foster social and emotional learning skills in students in grades PK-12 during the 2020-2021 school year. They will award up to $7,000 to school-based educators for classroom and/or school SEL initiatives, and up to $25,000 for district-level initiatives. This year they are also considering some two-year grants. More information and application details can be found here. The deadline for applications is Friday, April 10. Please pass this message along to anyone in your networks you think would be interested. Thanks for helping to get the word out!

Big day today (Thursday) at the Brookwood School in Manchester. We performed our Woman Who Outshone the Sun, and then presented 4 workshops for the 4th & 5th grades. We designed and prepped 80 masks for this program! 4th grade made Greek Satyr Chorus masks and 5th grade made Japanese masks. Each workshop was only 45 minutes long. Go to my FB wall and see how well these students did today!
Good morning, Young Audiences! I hope you like my new video, great for teaching early literacy (and days of the week, and healthy eating) through music!
