I envision a better future where everyone can enrich their lives through the arts, and the Arts Education for All Act will help make that a reality.
Providing all students with the opportunity to receive a quality arts education is a matter of equity. Arts education should be available to all students, not just those who have artistic families or the financial resources to pay for an arts education on their own.
The arts are a fundamental part of a well-rounded education, especially now when innovative thinking and creative problem solving are in high demand.
The Arts Education for All Act will help to close existing gaps in access to arts education by supporting and encouraging arts education & programming for our young children, K-12 students, and youth & adults involved in the justice system. https://bonamici.house.gov/media/press-releases/bonamici-pingree-leger-fern-ndez-launch-arts-education-all-act
Join me live as I launch my Arts Education for All Act with special guests @joshgroban, Brooks Ashmanskas, Rep. @chelliepingree, and others!
