Inspiring Stories of Arts Education in Illinois

During National Arts Education Week (September 8-14), we began gathering some of our favorite stories of arts education in Illinois. No matter the size of the school or school district, the arts thrive in classrooms across the state thanks to the passion of teachers, principals, and superintendents who understand the enormous contribution that the arts make in young people.
