Arts education resonates with so many of us. It fosters innovation, creativity, and can literally be a life-changing experience. These, along with other social-emotional skills, form a foundation for learning. 

Yet, while many communities have access to quality arts education, many youth are still being left out.

That's why MASSCreative and Arts|Learning have partnered with the Massachusetts Cultural Council, Arts at the Boston Public Schools, and the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education to make sure every Massachusetts student has access to quality arts education.

Supported in part by Americans for the Arts’ State Policy Pilot Program, the program aims to establish arts education as integral to every school district’s curriculum.

Help advocate for quality arts education for every Massachusetts student

Get involved in one of the Arts For All initiatives:

  • Including arts education as a university admissions requirement
  • Injecting the arts into STEM education
    • The Arts for All partners are working with the STEM and the Arts Subcommittee of the MA STEM Advisory Council to explore the infusion of the arts across STEM education (STEM to STEAM), with a plan to incorporate this in the state’s next STEM Action Plan (2016-17)
    • Learn more about the STEM and the Arts Subcommittee

  • Measuring creativity and innovation across all subjects
  • Funding arts education in under-resourced schools by tapping into Title I Funds

Partnership with Massachusets seems to be extremely promising. I believe they will start from secondary education and in several years we will see the Master’s program launched there as well.
