APAEP is a program at Auburn University dedicated to bringing educational opportunities to those in prison in Alabama. By exploring at least three of the four areas of Fine Arts, the student will develop problem-solving and critical-thinking skills, enhance their creativity and perceptual skills, and develop an appreciation for the arts which in turn will reinforce their academic skills.
This statement articulates the purpose and value of arts education in the balanced curriculum of all students, asserts its place as a core academic subject area, and details how sequential arts learning can be supported by rigorous national standards and assessments.
With the goal of artistic literacy for all students in Connecticut, the Connecticut Arts Standards set the guidelines for schools, districts, teachers and communities to develop artistically literate citizens. We work to achieve this mission through school and community programs, professional development, parent engagement, and advocacy. After 20+ years in the Graphics industry, I returned to school in 2003 to earn a Teaching Credential in Art. The Department of Curriculum and Pedagogy offers a PhD concentration and MA and MEd specializations in Art Education, along with a secondary Teacher Education (BEd) major, Diploma and Certificate in Art Education. Representatives of the Oklahoma Alliance for Arts Education will review all nominations during the selection process.
For example, a 2005 report in Illinois found almost no opposition to arts education among principals and district superintendents, yet there were large disparities in school offerings around the state. The range of issues in education is vast, yet you’ll be able to explore topics of your choice in depth.
By addressing the four priority areas highlighted in this agenda, the Partnership will be moving toward the goal that, by the year 2020, every young person in America, at every grade level, will have equitable access to high quality arts learning opportunities, both during the school day and out-of-school time.
