For Schools & Classrooms

Arts education moves from moral imperative to classroom reality

All Arts for All goals feed into improving the classroom experience for students. The policy and plan provide a roadmap. Tools and training give educators the means to deliver quality arts education. Community support for arts education and funding streams help to insure forward progress. But, in the end, classroom teachers and principals make the arts come alive for students in the classroom.

Arts for All Tools and Resources designed to help teachers and principals include:

The searchable online Arts Education Programs for Students directory features more than 250 field trips, performances, residencies, and workshops, all standards-based, high quality and available during the school day.

The Programs for Educators directory offers a searchable database of high quality arts education professional development sources for teachers, teaching artists and administrators.

Designing the Arts Learning Community is a handbook for K-12 professional development designers that reflects national best practices and features 50 model programs from across the country.
