Young Audiences Arts for Learning Virginia joins thousands of arts organizations and communities across the nation to celebrate National Arts in Education Week, September 9-15. We will recognize and celebrate the transformative power of arts education through activities that honor the efforts of teachers, artists, and cultural groups working to make the arts a crucial part of education in the lives of community members.
We encourage all of you to participate in what has become the country’s largest annual collective celebration of the arts in education. Americans for the Arts provides plentiful advocacy tools for teachers, parents, and artists to advocate on behalf of arts education on their website. A listing of tools for making the most of Arts in Education Week, can be found here.
“The highlight of her summer!”
For the fourth year, YAV held two summer camps in partnership with the Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts. Joby Webb offered this feedback on his daughter’s experience:
“Caroline’s attended the art camp and the theater camp this summer and had an absolute blast. She loved the instructors and the counselors. She’s been the youngest (or one of the youngest) campers at both session so Mindy and I were a little nervous that she might be intimidated…but it has been the highlight of her summer (outside of going to beach!). You guys are doing a great job. Thanks!”
YAV strives to make every student’s experience as positive as Caroline’s, and with help from supporters like you, we can!
