National Arts in Education Week is a national celebration recognizing the transformative power of the arts in education. Designated by Congress in 2010, the celebration is designated to bring attention to this cause and to support equitable access to the arts for all students. National Arts in Education Week takes place annually during the week beginning with the second Sunday of September. This year it falls on September 11 – 17, 2016. The arts are an essential part of a complete education, no matter if it happens in the home, school, or community. Students of all ages—from kindergarten to college to creative aging programs—benefit from artistic learning, innovative thinking, and creativity. Celebrating National Arts in Education Week is a way to recognize this impact and share the message with friends, family, and communities. Find out more about National Arts in Education week.
