About Arts Every Day
Arts Every Day is proud to be a driving force in building and sustaining a Baltimore City that values public education through creativity, art, and culture. We advocate for and support sequential arts education while working to empower educators as leaders within their school communities. In partnership with Baltimore City Public Schools, Arts Every Day works to ensure that students have a seat at the opera, feet in the museum and a teaching artist in their classroom. Not only are Baltimore City Schools’ students the artists and arts patrons of tomorrow, they are the leaders and decision makers upon which our City’s future will depend.
Through arts-based learning, we envision that all Baltimore City Schools’ communities will serve as centers for innovation, collaboration, and partnership.
Arts Every Day strengthens learning by making arts education and cultural experiences an integral part of classroom instruction for all students.
Serving as a catalyst for creative learning in Baltimore City Public Schools, Arts Every Day builds and sustains long-term partnerships with schools, artists, and cultural institutions while working to connect and empower teachers as leaders within their school communities.
Arts Every Day Schools Program
The Arts Every Day Schools Program works to overcome barriers of equity and access by partnering with school educators and administrators over the long-term to build school-wide Arts Integration Initiatives that inspire and engage both students and teachers. AED partnership is organized under a three-stage framework of progress that builds towards a whole-school practice of arts integration. Through the Schools Program, we inspire teachers to integrate meaningful arts experiences with core subject curricular objectives in their classrooms.
This is done through:
Arts Every Day school grants ensure access to programs including artist residencies, workshops, and trips to local museums and cultural institutions across Baltimore City. Professional development and individualized school support help teachers integrate the arts into classroom instruction. Most importantly, we cultivate long-term partnerships with schools to inspire lasting change in teaching and learning in and through the arts. We aim for arts every day, for every student, in every school.
