Innovation. Creativity. Critical Thinking. (And, Yes, Fun.)

How you can support arts education at your school.

Innovation. Creativity. Critical thinking. 

These are the skills that all children need. But at too many schools arts education has been cut out of the curriculum.

Budget cuts have left many children without the instruction they need to acquire skills for the 21st century.

What to do?

Register for the “Creative Ways to Connect with Your School Board” webinar. This will give you practical and unique ways to connect with your newly-elected school board members and promote arts education in your school district.

This webinar, hosted by the California Alliance for Arts Education and California State PTA, will feature strategies from three arts education advocacy experts and include a question and answer session.
