National Arts in Education Week, 2023

Updated: Oct 30, 2023

ARTS FOR LEARNING CELEBRATES NATIONAL ARTS IN EDUCATION WEEK BY HIGHLIGHTING IMPACT FROM 2022-2023 SCHOOL YEAR

Serving 15,000 more students than the previous year


Arts for Learning WNY joins thousands of arts organizations and communities across the nation to celebrate National Arts in Education Week, September 11-15.


Passed by Congress in 2010, House Resolution 275 designates the week that follows the second Sunday of September as National Arts in Education Week. The celebration is intended to bring attention to the cause of arts education for elected officials and educational decision-makers across the country and to support equitable access to the arts for all students.


"The arts are essential, especially for kids who have been inundated by screen time. The Arts for Learning workshops at the Community School Saturday Academies have given my children the opportunity to develop their creativity and motor skills through hands-on arts activities. I am so grateful."

Molly Towey

Parent, North Park Community School


To celebrate, Arts for Learning will highlight the impact they've had on the region over the past year as our community embarks on a new school year, brimming with an eagerness for education and hope for what the future holds.


Highlights from the 2022-2023 year include:

  • Serving 15,000 more students than the previous year

  • Reaching 50,000 youth and families

  • Launching the Master Teaching Artist Training Program - a pilot initiative focused on advancing the skills of artists

  • Hiring 34 Buffalo Public School students as apprentices through the ArtWorks Apprenticeship program
