The Changing Face of Arts Education in Ohio
Wednesday, November 9, 2016, 5:30-7:30 PM
Arts education continues to face serious challenges. Despite years of research that speaks to the value of arts learning, national and state education policies and budget constraints continue to put arts education programs at risk of being reduced or eliminated. Still, where arts programs thrive, students are learning at a higher level of engagement, articulating ideas with more confidence, and gain invaluable performance-based experience in creative, cooperative, and reflective work. Come and join a dialogue with presenter Tim Katz as he delves deeper into this topic. He will also share the current work of the Ohio Alliance for Arts Education (OAAE) in the areas of arts assessment literacy and renewed advocacy for arts learning in the context of the new direction presented in the federal Every Student Succeeds Act.
