National and Delaware Arts in Education Week - September 13-19, 2015
The arts are an essential part of a complete education. Students of all ages – from kindergarten to college to creative aging programs – benefit from artistic learning, innovative thinking, and creativity. National Arts in Education Week celebrates and recognizes the importance of the arts to a well-rounded education. Designated by Congress in 2010 (see House Resolution 275), the celebration is designed to attract the attention of elected officials and educational decision makers across the country and to support equitable access to the arts for all students. In recognition of this week, Governor Jack Markell has signed a proclamation (view proclamation) designating September 13-19, 2015 as Delaware Arts in Education Week.
