The Beat E-Newsletter: June 2017

Hard to believe that it is June and another school year is coming to an end.
What is the NJAEP doing this summer? Well – the short answer is A LOT!
This summer we will be busy planning for September. Much is happening in September and we want to share a few of those things.
September brings:
  • The release of the third New Jersey Arts Education Census Report
  • Arts in Education Week from September 10-16
  • New Visual and Performing Arts Standards from the NJDOE
  • Results of a new Eagleton Poll with statewide public opinion on issues regarding arts education.
  • The ARTS ED NOW campaign growing in scope and impact
The month culminates on September 28 with the second Arts Ed Now Summit. The brilliant Sir Ken Robinson, described by Fast Company magazine, as one of “the world’s elite thinkers on creativity and innovation” is the keynote speaker. Certainly a day not to be missed.
And you can join the fun. Throughout the summer we will be providing ideas and tools for you to take advantage of all the information and be active in your own school or organization during Arts Education Week. The Summer is the perfect time to plan for how we can work together to elevate the place of arts education in our schools.
More to come on all of these fronts. Stay tuned.
All of us at the Partnership wish you a wonderful, restful, refl

The Beat: NJAEP’s Newsletter – March 2017

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!
