What a Morning! State of Arts Education: Uplift, Inform, Connect!

Presented by the Sonoma County Arts Education Alliance, this in-person event was all about students. From featured student performances from AEA Student Arts Spotlights to student presenters and art exhibitors, conversations centered around how Sonoma County creates and strengthens arts education opportunities for our students. Students asked question of County Superintendent Candidates, how would they support arts education for students. Examples of excellence throughout the county were shared about student engagement, parental involvement, arts funding, and AEA goals. Great to be together again! Read more about the event HERE.
