"Why Art?" Advocacy Tools

Why Art

We know you believe, as we do, that every child deserves the opportunity to learn in, with, and through the arts. Our goals are aligned with yours - to ensure that our kids have the best education possible. So let's work together!

To effectively communicate the ART=OPPORTUNITY message we have developed creative tools including prints ads, online banners, bookmarks and our popular WHY ART? card packs in English and Spanish. JUST ADDED! Download and print our new WHY ART? Posters to hang in your classroom, library or office. Feel free to customize our tools and make them your own, we'd be more than happy to help. Be sure to let us know how you will use the materials and how we can help support your work!

 "Why Art?" Cards

Share with a colleague, a principal, our elected officials, anyone who you believe should hear our message; our "Why Art?" cards are the best tools for your advocacy efforts. Available in both English and Spanish.

 
 

Art Integration Textbook

This text is ideal as a primer on arts integration and a foundational support for teaching, learning, and assessment, especially within the context of multicultural and multilingual classrooms. In-depth discussions of the role of arts integration in meeting the goals of Title I programs, including academic achievement, student engagement, school climate and parental involvement, are woven throughout the text, as is the role of the arts in meeting state and federal student achievement standards.
 

ART=OPPORTUNITY Logo Library

Include the logo on your printed materials, letterhead, website, and other marketing materials. It's a simple way to say "We believe arts education matters".
