Arts Education Advocacy

A May 2005 Harris Poll on the attitudes of Americans toward arts education, commissioned by Americans for the Arts, revealed that 93% of respondents agreed that the arts are vital to providing a well rounded education for children.

New Mexico Arts is committed to providing individuals, organizations and schools with the resources they need to be effective advocates for arts education programs in New Mexico schools. The best way to build support for any school district arts education program is to involve the administration and community in developing a strong, well rounded district arts education program.
