Alaska’s Commissioner of Eduction Dr. Michael Johnson has named March as a month to celebrates the arts in our schools!

AAEC is planning a statewide celebration where students can make art by drawing, singing, dancing, acting, and share it with the rest of us. Each Sunday, we will release a new prompt to spark creativity, along with some educator resources for the week’s theme to bring the arts into your classroom! Don’t forget to tag #ArtsEdMonthAK + @akartsed to share student & teacher creations across the arts.

Week 1: February 27-March 5- Community

Week 2: March 6-12- Connections

Week 3: March 13-19- Culture

Week 4: March 20-26- Family

Week 5: March 27-April 2- Nature
