September 11-17, 2016 marks the 6th annual National Arts in Education week–a week set aside to celebrate the importance and transformative power of the Arts in all realms of education.
From Americans for the Arts,
National Arts in Education Week is a national celebration recognizing the transformative power of the arts in education. Designated by Congress in 2010 through House Resolution 275, the celebration is designated to bring attention to this cause for elected officials and educational decision makers across the country and to support equitable access to the arts for all students.
