Connecting Schools with Art Resources

Connecting Schools with Art Resources

September 13, 2019

Linda Jacobson reports in Education Dive about Ingenuity, a Chicago arts education advocacy organization that has created Artlook—an online tool that “connects schools with arts organizations wanting to partner with them.” Ingenuity is collaborating with the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts to expand the platform to cities across the nation, such as Jacksonville, Baltimore, New Orleans, Houston, Portland (Oregon), and Sacramento. This expansion of the platform “comes as arts educators are calling for more ways to produce data about the benefits of arts programming for students and as some states are beginning to include participation in the arts as part of their Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) plans.”
