Ten Steps Toward Starting a Community School of the Arts

by LaMoine MacLaughlin
Executive Director and Co-Founder
Northern Lakes Center and School for the Arts

Full of facts and advice, this book guides community leaders, board and staff members, teaching artists, and aspiring community school directors through the process of launching a successful community school of the arts. From involving the community to developing programs, from identifying resources to finding a facility, and from hiring faculty to board development, it offers an abundance of useful information.

Whether you are considering starting a school or are a staff member at an existing school, this book will teach you, inspire you, and remind you that you are not alone in this growing national movement.

This book would be a perfect gift for anyone committed to the arts as a vehicle for community building. It is also an ideal reference tool for writing grant proposals, developing case statements, and advocating for arts in the community.
