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: March 1-5- Animals

Week 2: March 7-11- Harmony

Week 3: March 15-19- Culture

Week 4: March 21-27- Community

Week 5: March 28-21- Dreams
