Art IS Education!

Submitted By Kristen Yasukawa

The Alameda County Office of Education's Alliance for Arts Learning Leadership presents Art IS Education! Throughout March, Alameda County schools and communities will celebrate arts education with cultural enrichment events and special engagements connected to this year's theme, "Every Child is Creative: Together We Create Our World." Art IS Education! events showcase the education and empowerment of youth through art, and advocate for arts education as an essential component to a meaningful education system and a thriving community.

The 2013 theme, "Every Child is Creative: Together We Create Our World" inspires students and community members to make their voice heard through art and to create projects that envision their role in positive change individually and for the world. Art IS Education! encourages teachers, students and parents to share their projects and plan a showcase event. Event planning resources are available at

"We are facing a new era of education with a much greater emphasis on culturally relevant teaching and learning that supports student engagement, critical thinking, and applied learning," said Alameda County Schools Superintendent Sheila Jordan. "Art IS Education! highlights many excellent examples of this through the arts - providing opportunities for students to demonstrate learning across disciplines and contexts in creative, impactful ways."

This year's Art IS Education! celebratory events are made possible thanks to partnerships with the Alameda County Office of Education, Alameda County Arts Commission, Alameda County Library and Alameda County Sustainability Program.
