We’re getting ready to celebrate and spread the word; next week, September 13 – 19, is National Arts In Education Week!
Let’s get in the mood! Please take the time to listen to this fabulous radio archive from last week. https://s3.amazonaws.com/weru/archives/2015/maa-20150825.mp3 The WERU Arts Alive program had a group discussion around why the arts are essential and arts advocacy, with Argy Nestor, Director of Arts Education, Maine Arts Commission; Susan Potters, Executive Director, Maine Alliance for Arts In Education; Jeff Poulin, Arts Education Program Director, Americans for the Arts, Washington DC; Jen Nash, teacher, Sebasticook Valley Middle School.
A question to ponder; Why are the Arts not important, but essential to the educational experience? Please share your response in the comment section below.
