Arts Education

Arts Education Grantmakers in the Arts is committed to ensuring that all students have access to quality arts education. Research shows that access to arts education supports higher graduation rates, social and emotional development, civic engagement, and future arts participation. Yet low income students and students of color continue to lack access to everyday instruction in the arts while in school. GIA provides information, training, research, and other resources to support arts education funders in furthering their work and the field as a whole.
