Arts Ed Matters advocates for a strong presence of the arts in public education. We believe that early and sustainable exposure to the visual and performing arts fosters a more complete process of learning, builds healthy and vibrant communities, and prepares students to enter an ever-changing global landscape. In addition to providing high quality professional learning opportunities, we foster community dialogue and engage families in the vital role of the arts in education.

Arts Ed Matters 12-minute documentary entitled “Arts is the Root” about why the arts are important in schools is now available in Spanish!
