2017 #ArtsEdWeek Recap

Last week, the Indianapolis community celebrated National Arts in Education Week with numerous different events across the city. From a convening of professional arts educators at Edison School of the Arts and a meeting of the Any Given Child Indy Governing Council, to workshops at Clowes Memorial Hall and a jazz performance at IUPUI, community members celebrated the power of arts education in different ways throughout the week. Schools around the city celebrated the arts in education through arts enhanced and integrated lessons, and Any Given Child Indy released its 2017 Community Report. An inspiring event at the Indianapolis Art Center Thursday evening also featured seven short talks from community members highlighting the positive impacts of the arts, and Arts for Learning also hosted a professional development workshop for teaching artists. Needless to say, National Arts in Education Week 2017 was a success!
