The Alaska Arts Education Consortium hosted a statewide celebration to celebrate March as Arts in Education Month. Each week, students across the state celebrated and expressed creativity through visual arts, music, cultural arts, dance, drama, and media arts.

The AAEC would like to thank Alaska’s Commissioner of Eduction Dr. Michael Johnson for supporting the arts in education, and all of the educators and students who participated in #ArtsEdMonthAK!

Here is a musical submission from Mr. Samuelu’s Music Performance and Production class at Barrow High School and Nuiqsut Trapper School in Northwest Arctic Borough School District. This song was written, performed, and produced for the District’s “Message of Hope” theme this spring.
