Culture inspires.

Arts education – which includes instruction in the practice and appreciation of a wide range of disciplines, including the visual arts, music, dance, theatre, literature, and design – is an essential part of a modern, well-rounded curriculum. We are committed to the idea that every student in Massachusetts deserves to have access to arts education at every level.
