March On Through March and Beyond

March is Arts Education in Our Schools Month and in this issue of The Beat we are celebrating that in a big way.

The history of this event appears to date back to the 60’s when the Arts and Creative Materials Institute created an event to emphasize the value of children participating in the visual arts. This was followed by Music in our Schools month in the 70’s followed by dance and theatre creating a month long celebration of the arts.

In this issue, see what is happening across the state. From Cape May to Warren County, schools and communities are hosting events and programs to highlight the arts in our schools. We are so excited to hear from Acting Commissioner of Education Kimberley Harrington as she reflects on the huge influence the arts had on her as a student and how that shaped her teaching and her family. Very powerful and touching.

And don’t forget to check out ArtsEdNow.org throughout the month where you can see the excitement build as we post a daily record of ways people are recognizing March.

Keep it going every day this month and every day this year. Arts Ed Now!
