Arts Education Framework Now Available

The Sonoma County Arts Education Alliance has published the Arts Education Framework, a free tool for Sonoma County schools and districts to use to increase arts education access and equity.


December 2019

Based on assessments of the state of arts education in Sonoma County schools, the Sonoma County Arts Education Alliance, with facilitation by the California Alliance for Arts Education, has developed and recently published the Sonoma County Arts Education Framework: A Collaborative Vision 2019-2024

The Framework is a product of three years of research, analysis, discussion, and collaboration on how to provide increased and improved arts education access and equity to better the lives of Sonoma County TK-12 students. It was developed with feedback from teachers, school administrators, artists, and arts organizations.

The Arts Education Alliance invites schools and districts to use the Framework to chart a solid course for providing arts education, and is a step toward in ensuring that students in every district in Sonoma County have access to arts education.
