AL LogoImportant Statewide "Arts for All" Gatherings!  
Arts|Learning, MASSCreative, the Massachusetts Cultural Council, and Boston Public Schools, with generous funding from the Americans for the Arts, are working together to establish arts education as integral to every school district's curriculum by:
  • Including one year of arts education in high school as a MA state university admissions requirement
  • Including the arts in a comprehensive STEM education
  • Measuring creativity and innovation across all subjects
Please join us for discussion and action steps on how we can best advocate for quality arts education and youth arts programs for each student in Massachusetts. Participants will:
  • Obtain full knowledge about the Arts for All platform
  • Give feedback about our plans
  • Launch into action to support the goals of a comprehensive arts education policy for MA

School Arts Leader Program to Launch!
Arts|Learning has been working for the past two years laying the groundwork for launching its School Arts Leader (SAL) Program here in Massachusetts. Modeled after similar programs in California and Washington, SAL will advise and guide principals and other school leaders to form an arts team and develop an arts plan for their schools that can be arts-domain specific, use an arts integration model, or interweave outside community arts resources in the school.

We are currently seeking applications from district and school leaders here in Massachusetts to begin this process later this school year. The program is currently grant funded and requires only commitment on the part of the school to the program.

Contact Jonathan Rappaport at for more details.
