Announcements, Events, and Information

Sign Up to Support the Arts in Texas!

It seems like every several years we find ourselves needing to advocate for the value of Fine Arts in Texas public schools. There are bills that will be considered in the Texas legislature that have the potential to negatively affect Fine Arts education in the state.

I would ask all of you to follow this link and register as a supporter of the Arts in Texas schools. The more advocacy we have to support our programs and their impact on students, the more likely we are to continue to see strength in the arts in Texas schools!
