The Wake Forest Renaissance Centre for the Arts is joining with arts educators and advocates around our state and nation to celebrate the fifth anniversary of “National Arts in Education Week” which kicked off yesterday.
In July of 2010, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a resolution designating the second week of September as “Arts in Education Week” as a way to raise awareness of the importance of arts education and to support equitable access to the arts.
The Renaissance Centre is using this week to promote its “Arts in Education” program which offers educators and students field trip opportunities that meet the NC Standard Course of Study.
“We are committed to student success and to offering engaging out-of-the classroom experiences for our community,” said Renaissance Centre Manager Catherine Gouge. “Our programming provides learning ties to both the philosophy of the essential standards for arts education and the concepts for English/language arts.”
The Arts in Education program provides a comprehensive platform that includes various arts disciplines with content for all grade levels. The Renaissance Centre has partnered with a number of performers to help educators achieve their goals and meet curriculum requirements.
