About Arts Education Arts Education is a collective term for the four separate and distinct disciplines of dance, music, theatre arts, and visual arts, each with its own body of content and skills. Arts Education should be viewed as a full partner in the academic community and fundamental to the total school curriculum. Public School Law 115C-81 specifies arts education as part of each child's basic education and the federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) identifies the Arts as core, academic subjects. The arts are one of the best ways to teach 21st century skills such as creativity and innovation; critical thinking and problem solving; communication and collaboration; flexibility and adaptability; initiative and self-direction; social and cross-cultural skills; and leadership and responsibility.

African American Music

Describing the African-American influence on American music in all of its glory and variety is an intimidating—if not impossible—task. African American influences are so fundamental to American music that there would be no American music without them.

Wednesday wisdom from North Carolina Poet Laureate Jaki Shelton Green. ⁣

Earlier this year, we interviewed Jaki on our podcast Arts Across NC. She spoke candidly about her belief in the power of art to heal, her commitment to bringing art to underserved communities, and the challenges she's faced as North Carolina's first African American poet laureate. ⁣

She is a master of words both spoken and written, and our conversation feels as timely as ever.

Crayola

"Everyone Has Feelings" prompts social and emotional awareness and inspires children to create, present, respond, and connect as they learn. Find this colorful, educational video and more, here: https://crayo.la/3daoYHX.

Children build social and emotional skills by identifying what other people feel and recognizing feelings in themselves. In this activity, children will create a book that will illustrate a variety of feelings. When sharing their illustrated books, they connect written words with pictures and see how both convey meaning.

At Crayola, our mission is to help families and educators raise creatively alive children. This at-home activity infuses creativity in learning and empowers children with the colorful tools that bring their imaginations to life.

CBS NEWS TO COMMEMORATE MEMORIAL DAY AND COVID19 DEATHS WITH “TAPS ACROSS AMERICA” #CBSTaps DATE Monday at 3PM local time (rolling time zones for your region), thousands of trumpet and bugle players will sound Taps from their porches Memorial Day celebrations across the U.S. will look a bit different this year, with most picnics, parades, and services cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak. That’s why CBS News “On the Road” correspondent Steve Hartman is teaming up with retired Air Force bugler Jari Villanueva to keep the spirit of the holiday alive. Hartman and Villanueva are asking veterans, musicians, teachers, and students of all abilities and ages to sound Taps on their front lawns, porches, and driveways at 3:00 PM local time this Monday, May 25th. Hartman was inspired by a story he did in 2012 on Don Brittain, who sounded Taps on his balcony at sunset. Hartman thought other trumpet players could do the same. Independently, Villanueva had virtually the same idea for a Memorial Day tribute. Villanueva runs the organization Taps for Veterans. He says he wasn’t content to let the holiday pass without commemorating America’s fallen service members, as well as the many lives lost to coronavirus. If you’d like to dust off your trumpet or bugle and sound the call, here’s what you need to know: Who can participate? Anyone who can sound Taps on a trumpet, bugle, or similar instrument When should I sound Taps? Monday, May 25 (Memorial Day) at 3:00 PM in your time zone How do I sound Taps? Find the sheet music here. Villanueva recommends playing in the key of B flat, if possible. Where should I play? Your front yard, porch, balcony, driveway, etc. – anywhere you can be socially distant from neighbors and passerby. Feel free to alert your neighbors so they can come listen from a safe distance! On Tuesday’s CBS Evening News, we’ll share videos of some of the participants. Here are some tips to help you record your video: What should I use to record a video of myself playing? Any phone with a video camera works – you don’t need any fancy equipment. Just place your phone somewhere stable, or have someone with steady hands hold it in one place. Hold the phone horizontally, not vertically, so your video is wider than it is long. Record the whole performance. If neighbors or friends come to listen, get a shot of them too! How do I share my video with CBS? Tag us in your video on social media with the hashtag #CBSTaps, or upload it to this folder (link below). Please include your full name and location in the file name, if possible.
