The California Alliance for Arts Education has many resources available to help students, parents, and community members get the Arts into schools. One very important way is through the LCAP process. CAAE has the LCFF Toolkit about how to let your district know and includes everything you need for action (available in English & Spanish): http://artsed411.org/LCFF
Here are some helpful and creative hints on how to work effectively with your School Board:
Also through the CAAE is the Student Voices Campaign. In its second year, The Student Voices Classroom Guide structures the campaign as a project-based learning opportunity recommended for grades 7-12 for any subject area. Through the Campaign, students create 2-minute videos that capture their vision for their school to share with their local school board to help with the LCAP process! studentvoicescampaign.org/
If you are unfamiliar of the Council for Art Education, they have an outstanding Youth Art Month program which is easy to participate in. Please visit their site for more information.
Creativity is power--celebrate it!
The City of San Jose Office of Cultural Affairs launched the #408Creates social media campaign in partnership with a group of San Jose arts organizations, artists, and local businesses. Through this campaign, our goal is to highlight the range of creativity happening everyday in the South Bay.
We invite you to join us in celebrating San Jose’s creativity by tagging photos of your creations and creative experiences #408Creates on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. Your tags will help showcase the uniqueness of this place where we live and work. It also helps us know what and how people are creating in San Jose, so that we can continue to develop programs that further strengthen the cultural vibrancy of the city. Web Site
