Art is Education ensures that every child has equitable access to a quality education that includes the arts, preparing them for the 21st century.
Art is Education will host our Spring Best Practices session for teaching artists, teachers, and administrators with a focus on sharing highlights from some of the most successful arts-infused residencies in each of the Art is Education schools. Presenters representing each school and their arts partners will share their accomplishments and demonstrate how students achieved artistically and academically.
Spring Best Practices will happen Thursday, May 23, 3:30-6:00pm at the Idea Center at PlayhouseSquare, 1375 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland.
This event is open to teachers from across the Cleveland Metropolitan School District. There is no cost to attend and this professional development is not paid. However, CMSD teachers are eligible to receive two hours of Voluntary Professional Development for their attendance.

Through a partnership of 30+ arts, cultural, philanthropic and educational institutions and with support from the Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD), the Art is Education initiative provides standards-based, integrated arts experiences to children. Art is Education schools have equitable access to local arts resources and educators are empowered to incorporate arts learning across the curriculum. By supporting a whole school model, Art is Education addresses important issues of academic achievement and school climate.
Art is Education is also about advocacy on behalf of arts education. The only way to ensure that students in Cleveland receive a truly equitable education is to mobilize the greater community to support the arts as a vital component in the education of all students.
Through shared goals for a quality education for all students in Cleveland, the Art is Education initiative supports the Cleveland Metropolitan School District in its goal to become a premier school district in the United States.
