Arts education is a proven factor in student achievement and workforce readiness for the 21st century.
Arts Education is a primary focus of the Cultural Council. Through its close working relationships with the School District of Palm Beach County and the continuing work of its Cultural Education Committee, the Council is committed to ensuring that our young people have the best possible opportunities to reap the proven benefits that arts and culture bring to the educational experience.
The Cultural Education Committee (CEdC) meets monthly for networking, professional development and special sessions in arts education.
If you have any questions regarding the Cultural Council’s education programs, please contact our manager of arts and cultural education, Trish Halverson: (561) 472-3347 or [email protected].
