NATIONAL ARTS IN THE SCHOOL DAYÒ (NASD) gives young people in grades K-12 nationwide the opportunity to experience and be inspired by all kinds of creative arts - in school.  

Participation is FREE and there are no rules.

The day’s activities can be as ambitious or as modest as schools wish and are able to create.

 

The 1st NASD took place on April 16, 2008 as the six schools of the Port Chester, New York public school system opened their doors to thirty-five guest artists who shared their art with students through special presentations in elementary, middle and high school classrooms and assemblies.  On this same special day, dozens of teachers taught the day's lessons with an arts focus or through an arts-based lesson plan.
 
Make a Difference in Your Community

President Obama entered office with the first-ever presidential arts platform that includes three key priorities: publicly champion the importance of arts education; expand public and private partnerships between schools and arts organizations; and create an Artists Corps.

NATIONAL ARTS IN THE SCHOOL DAY embodies all of these goals including a model, based on 25 years of community success, for a community Artists Corps.
 
This new era of change recognizes the power of individuals at community levels to make a difference in building a better America.  In these tough economic times
NATIONAL ARTS IN THE SCHOOL DAYÒ is a way to keep the arts in your school at no cost.  Participate in 2013 and create unforgettable arts experiences for young people, teachers and artists in your community.
