The New Hampshire Arts Learning Network is a collaborative of individuals, organizations and groups with a common interest in arts education, working to support quality arts learning for all students in New Hampshire by sharing information, resources, and services. It is about connecting people, places and ideas so that all our students have access to the arts.

This website is a place to share information, resources, and services; find out about arts education news and events; learn about federal and state policy and how local education agencies fulfill policy requirements; and access arts education advocacy tools and ideas.

“I just wanted to share that our young music teacher was so fired up by the conference that first thing Monday she sent out a school wide email offering a mini workshop on songwriting in the classroom! She then went on to immediately apply what she had learned in Taylor O’Donnell (Vocal Improv) workshop with her own chorus and now has been asked to work in this way with the HS chorus. I reported back to the Visual Art Vertical Team and they all want to go next year. “
– Liz Brett, Art Educator, Hillsboro-Deering School District

“Beyond fabulous!! Inspiring!” – quote from a conference participant


“The Arts as Inspiration for Learning*Teaching* Making*Living”, the NH State Council on the Arts’ Fall 2014 Arts Education Partnership Conference, took place the weekend of October 31 – November 2 in Greenfield, NH. More than 150 artists, teachers and arts education leaders representing 100 schools/organizations and five states explored and participated in arts learning workshops and professional development. Together, we visualized change, helped make a mandala mosaic mural for The Children’s Hospital, listened to inspiring speakers and presenters, connected with new and old friends and learned about new pathways for successful inclusion in arts education. The weekend included a special visit and workshop on “Inclusion in the Arts” at Crotched Mountain Rehabilitation Center. A Saturday night “Inspire Me” session shared visual presentations on ten exciting arts-centered solutions, projects, programs, initiatives and lesson plans. The NH Arts Learning Network believes the arts can lead the way for change during this important time in New Hampshire and American education.
