Art IS Education is an annual, month-long showcase demonstrating the power of youth learning in and through the arts. Each March, during National Arts Education Month, schools, school districts and community arts organizations participate in Art IS Education, where students have opportunities to share the process through which they have learned new skills, solved problems, taken risks, and persisted through obstacles, in order to express their ideas through art.
What is an Art IS Education event?
Events include presentations of visual and performing arts created by K-12 students with a public gathering at a school or community site during March in Alameda County. It could be a work in progress, a hands-on experience or workshop, or a celebration of completed artwork with parents and the school community. These events create a way for students to share with their community what they are learning in and through the visual and performing arts.
Alameda County Library is presenting 300 free arts events at all 12 locations.
How do you make your event an Art IS Education event?
