Heal With HeARTS, in partnership with Americans for the Arts, is proud to support this effort with a celebration on Saturday, September 8 to kick-off National Arts in Education Week. In addition to the monthly Kids Drum Circle, those who attend the event at the Charleston Pour House will have the opportunity to enjoy visual arts activities. The festivities will take place from 4:30-5:30 p.m.
The Charleston Pour House is located at 1977 Maybank Highway on James Island. This event is open free and open to all ages.
National Arts in Education Week was established by Congress in 2010. House Resolution 275 designates the week beginning the second Sunday of September as a time for communities to come together to celebrate the power of arts in education. This year, National Arts in Education Week will run from September 9-15.
As an arts education organization, Heal with HeARTS can attest to the power of the arts for students in the Charleston area. Of the many examples, one that we are proud of is the mural that Charleston-area high school students are creating at Hungry Monk Music in West Ashley. This project is a reminder of we champion arts in education, and a testament to the meaning of National Arts in Education Week. Stay tuned for more information about the unveiling of the mural which will take place this fall.
