youth arts month

All year we celebrate the Arts but especially in March when we bring attention to the amazing works by NH youth and share the outcomes of participation in high quality arts instruction. You can be an arts advocate in your school and community. Consider inviting elected officials such as school board members or local legislators to a school performance or to simply spend time observing students engaged in creative activities. Use our  Arts Learning Toolkit  to help you organize and plan for your event.
