National Arts in Education Week September 10 - 16, 2017

National Arts in Education Week is coming up! Help us highlight the importance of art education next week by taking action to protect the arts in classrooms around the country.

Recently, the Administration proposed drastic cuts to the funding for arts education. Sign the petition to U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos to encourage her to take action in ensuring equitable access to arts education so that every student in America succeeds.

You can also take part in American for the Arts’ national visibility campaign during the week of September 10-16 by using the hashtag #BecauseOfArtsEd to share your own story about arts and education and the impact the arts have had on your work and life.

  • Post on Facebook. Tell your #BecauseOfArtsEd story on Facebook. Let us know what you are doing now in work and life and how arts education has a positive impact with a photo! Be sure to use #ArtsEdWeek, too.
  • Send a tweet.  Share your #BecauseOfArtsEd story on Twitter. Be sure to include an image or video along with #ArtsEdWeek.
  • Share a photo. Post your favorite arts education photo on Instagram along with your #BecauseOfArtsEd story about the impact of arts education on your life. Be sure to use #ArtsEdWeek, too.

We look forward to seeing the stories you share.
