This week, Sept. 11-17, is National Arts in Education Week!
In July 2010, the U.S. House of Representatives designated the 2nd week of September as Arts in Education Week via House Resolution 275:
"Whereas arts education, comprising a rich array of disciplines including dance, music, theatre, media arts, literature, design and visual arts, is a core academic subject and an essential element of a complete and balanced education for all students."
Join the celebration by sharing your #artsed story on social media with the hashtag #BecauseOfArtsEd. Also, join the #ArtsEdChat on Twitter each night this week at 8pm EST, hosted by National Endowment for the Arts!
