Nearly 200 people attended the 2012 Arts Education Forum last week at Seattle University’s Pigott Auditorium. Missed it? You can still hear Mayor Mike McGinn, Seattle Public Schools Director of Curriculum and Instructional Support Wendy London, and a panel of students speak about arts learning, our Arts Education Partnership with the school district, and creating a comprehensive K-12 visual and performing arts plan for Seattle Public Schools. Watch the video here:
The forum was presented by the Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs, Seattle Arts Commission and Seattle Public Schools with support from Seattle University College of Arts & Sciences.
Our director Vincent Kitch also talked about arts education on Q13 Fox’s “Arts Around” segment. Hear about the upcoming public meetings (beginning in March) to engage the community in the creation of the arts plan. Watch that video here.
