Indy Arts Educators Meet During #ArtsEdWeek
The Indy Arts Educator Network, a group of local arts educators, met during National Arts in Education Week to share updates about their arts organizations’ education efforts. Representatives from Arts for Learning, Butler Arts Center, Indiana Historical Society, Nickel Plate Arts, Paige’s Music, Indianapolis Public Schools, and the Arts Council of Indianapolis were all in attendance. The meeting took place at Edison School of the Arts, one of the nine Any Given Child Indy schools. After a presentation about Edison School of the Arts by principal Nathan Tuttle and updates from each arts educator, the group went on a guided tour of the school. The tour featured the school’s professional dance room and black box theatre; vast visual arts, instrumental music, and vocal music rooms; and even the school’s chickens and learning farm. Seeing the work of the magnet arts school first-hand was a great experience for arts educators during National Arts in Education Week!
