Sep 10, 2017

The National Guild joins thousands of arts organizations and communities across the nation to celebrate National Arts in Education Week, September 10-16. This week, the Guild pays special recognition to the transformative power of arts education and honors the efforts of teachers, artists, and cultural groups working to make the arts a crucial part of education in the lives of community members.
“When students learn through the arts, they flourish in school, in work, and in life,” said Robert L. Lynch, president and CEO of Americans for the Arts. “It is critical that we keep an ongoing dialogue with elected officials and educational decision-makers about the arts as an essential part of a complete education. Arts in Education Week is the perfect time to recognize and share the message of this impact with friends, family, and community members.”
Everyone in the Guild community is encouraged to participate in what has become the country’s largest annual collective celebration of the arts in education. More information on how to find, share, and get involved with celebrations across the country is available at
Passed by Congress in 2010, House Resolution 275 designates the week that follows the second Sunday of September as National Arts in Education Week. The celebration is intended to bring attention to the cause of arts education for elected officials and educational decision makers across the country and to support equitable access to the arts for all students.
