Image for NEA to Host Free Webinar on Creativity and Arts Education

Aug 14, 2014

The National Endowment for the Arts' Interagency Task Force on the Arts and Human Development will host a free webinar on August 27 at 4:00PM EST. The webinar will discuss the question, how do in-school arts education programs affect student creativity, academics, or social outcomes? Join researchers from the Kennedy Center and Johns Hopkins University as they share their investigation of these topics.  

Ivonne Chand O'Neal, director of research and evaluation at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts will share her study on the Changing Education Through the Arts (CETA) program on Washington DC-area public school students, their parents, and teachers. Mariale Hardiman, professor at the Johns Hopkins University School of Education and former principal of Roland Park Elementary/Middle School in Baltimore, Maryland, will discuss her work at the intersection of cognitive research and effective teaching strategies.
 
This is the eighth public webinar hosted by the NEA Interagency Task Force on the Arts and Human Development, an alliance of 19 federal departments, agencies, divisions, and offices that encourages more and better research on how the arts help people reach their full potential at all stages of life. The NEA and the Interagency Task Force periodically host public webinars to share compelling research, practices, and/or funding opportunities for research in the arts and human development. Task Force members include representatives from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Department of Education, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, and other agencies and departments.
