Educators are at the heart of our work. The Department of Arts Education (DAE) supports teachers and administrators in maintaining, expanding, and re-envisioning their school’s arts education offerings. The website provides a range of resources for each of these groups and we are happy to work with all of these committed and enthusiastic educators in the classroom!
