 ARTS EDUCATION OVERVIEW < home

The Idaho Commission on the Arts believes that all young people should have an arts education that is curriculum-based, linked to content standards, and is enriched by ongoing opportunities to work with artists and community-based authentic arts resources.

To achieve this goal, the Commission encourages teachers, artists, arts organizations, and communities to join as partners to foster the learning and artistic development of students and teachers in pre-kindergarten through grade 12.

The Arts Education Program provides support for diverse and challenging arts learning opportunities in schools and communities by:

graphics Managing the Arts Education Grant program.
graphics Providing Arts Education Planning Resources.
graphics Maintaining a Directory of Teaching Artists that are skilled at working with young people in schools and communities.
graphics Enhancing the quality of teaching and learning in Idaho Schools through ArtsPowered Schools, a weeklong professional development opportunity for elementary classroom teachers.
graphics Sharing information on the impact that arts programs have on youth, teaching, and learning. Evidence of Learning and Peer Reflection Network.
graphics Contributing to the policies that are essential to achieving comprehensive arts education as a core K ­ 12 subject.
