National Arts in Education Week

Baton Rouge, LA – September 7, 2018 National Arts in Education was established by Congress in 2010 and serves as an opportunity to reflect upon the profound impact arts education has on students of all ages. The Arts Council of Greater Baton Rouge is dedicated to providing high-quality arts education experiences to the community. Through in-school artist residencies, students in our 11-parish region, some of which have limited access to arts education, receive weekly classes designed to provide foundational art skills and enhance academic curricula. Our outreach performances offer students the opportunity to learn while enjoying world-class entertainment. We offer arts classes for teens and adults, as well as camps or elementary age children. Our free teaching resources, including our Introduction to Jazz Curriculum and Professional Development workshops help both arts and academic teachers integrate new arts experiences to enrich their lesson plans.

Feel free to follow our social media platforms all this week for our #BecauseofArtsEd campaign, in celebration of #ArtsEdWeek. For more information on how you can take part in the Arts Council’s education opportunities, visit our website at or contact our Director of Education and Community Engagement, Leea Russell at 225- 344-8558 ext. 227.
