September 14: After my first set with @missdemeanorsd, Russell came up to me with his family member, said, “I really like your music. I wrote you a song!”, and gave me this piece of paper. I melted a little. I promised him I’d play it on my keyboard when I got home. Thanks for filling my cup back up, Russell! #thisiswhy #becauseofartsed #motivation #inspire #singerlife #giglife #coverband #itsthelittlethings #photoaday

On #Saturday we're all as happy as our #SummerDance students 😛 😛 🌷 🌷

“Combining education and arts creates a path of new experiences and life changing opportunities. With so many issues arising in our nation, arts gives access to new ways of thinking and solving anything we can think of.” - Terrance Fosque, Band SPA Board Rep #becauseofartsed #ArtsWillSaveTheWorld #artsedweek #artsedga

“Drama creates a space where no one will be judged for being crazy or acting weird. That’s what’s so fun about it. It’s an opportunity to let loose, have fun, and take a break from the stress encountered in daily life.” Sara Kathryn Wierwille, Drama SPA Board Rep #becauseofartsed #ArtsWillSaveTheWorld #artsedweek #artsedga

#FridayFeels reaching for the weekend with our ballet moves 💯 💯

A dream came true: as part of professional development, I got to tour SAIC’s Fashion Resource Collection of over 800 pieces from their designer fashion dating 1900-contemporary, including avant-garde designers like Isse Miyaki. Here I’m holding a Moschino gown!!!! I had never seen so many incredible works of art in person. I can’t believe I get to do this for my job :-) @fashionresourcecenter #imanartteacher #becauseofartsed

‪National Arts in Education should be more than a week. Day 9. 14” x 20” Graphite by E Troulis. #westviewhighschool #BecauseOfArtsEd

Did you know it’s arts education week? Which has me thinking about how arts education has affected my life.
#becauseofartsed I get to live my life as a full time artist. Because of arts education my grandparents, my parents, myself, my brothers, sisters, friends were able to express ourselves creatively. It is a privilege to live in a country where we have this outlet in schools. It’s up to us collectively to make sure that we keep the arts in school. Even if you’re not an “artist” ( though I truly think we are ALL artists) arts education gave you time to contemplate life differently, or to be able to appreciate the arts. So give a little thought about how your life is different because of arts education, and if you feel inspired, share it with the #becauseofartsed tag! .

“An education in the arts allows students to become well rounded individuals and citizens. By embracing the arts we can find new and innovative answers to the world’s problems.” - Nicholas Sanders, Drama SPA Board Rep #becauseofartsed #ArtsWillSaveTheWorld #artsedweek #artsedga

“An arts education allows students to learn more and improve on my arts through both classes and experience with other artists. The connections gained with other students and teachers can prove to be invaluable for the success of the students.” -Lucas Moss, Instrumental SPA Board Rep #becauseofartsed #ArtsWillSaveTheWorld #artsedweek #artsedga

“Arts education lets students be creative and have fun learning new skills. It lets kids do what they’re passionate about and form meaningful connections with the community through their art.” - Willa Pevey, Orchestra SPA Board Rep #becauseofartsed #ArtsWillSaveTheWorld #artsedweek #artsedga

Sketchbooks are on the cart and ready for some outdoor drawing at one of our local museums today! I can’t wait to draw in plein aire with my 3rd graders. Thank you, @teachingbytori for inviting me on your field trip again this year! All these sketchbooks are organized according to parent group leader...each class in its own tub with their own pencils for easier distribution. Definitely reminding me of my art-on-a-cart days and how thankful I am to have had that experience but even more thankful to have an art room! #pleinair #pleinairedrawing #artonacart #artroom #artfieldtrip #artclass #art #nelsonatkinsmuseumofart @nelsonatkins #nelsonatkins #naea #kaea #overlandpark #elementaryteacher #teachingmatters #becauseofartsed #kidsketchbook #sketchbooks #classroompinspirations #teachersfollowteachers #subplans #whyartmatters #iteachart #artfieldtrips #elementaryart #countryclubplaza

This incredible artist crossed my path as a high school student several years ago, when I was Director of Education at @theatrejacksonville, and after having her in one scene study class I knew there was something incredibly special about her. Sure she was predominantly a gifted musician at the time, with very little training in theatre performance, but she worked so hard and put so much trust in me and in @kendra.holton to help hone that raw talent into a killer audition package for college programs. She ultimately got stellar training at one of the country’s top collegiate musical theatre programs, and now look! She’s touring the country in a featured role in Disney’s Aladdin. I watched her KILL IT tonight with tears in my eyes and a smile that never left my face. You deserve all the incredible things coming your way, @oliviadonalson ❤️ #artseducation #thatsmygirl #BStar #aladdinmusical #proudteachermoment #agrabah #ATL #nationaltour #foxtheatreatl #ATLtheatre #BecauseOfArtsEd
