New Website Offers Best-Practices for Arts Education, Creative Learning

The Wallace Foundation, with Dallas-based nonprofit Big Thought, has launched the website Creating Quality which intends to provide information, tools and other resources to evaluate and improve the quality of arts education and creative learning in schools, after-school programs and summer learning opportunities.

Based on a quality improvement process developed and pioneered by Big Thought in Dallas, one of the nation's leading institutions working to deliver arts education to children, the Creating Quality website houses resources to: engage stakeholders, define quality teaching and learning, assess the quality of programming and improve education for all children.

Educators, artists, civic and community leaders, and policymakers can use the site to access. Resources include:

  • tools including research, templates and articles,
  • case studies featuring the work of schools, districts and nonprofits in Dallas and Boston, and
  • videos featuring commentary on the evaluation process from local and national leaders in arts education.
