The Missouri Alliance for
Arts Education supports, promotes, and advocates for fine arts education for the benefit of ALL

Who We Are and What We Do
The Alliance is a non-profit arts education service organization made up of the statewide arts education organizations, private citizens, and businesses that believe that all of Missouri's students deserve a high quality education that incorporates all the arts at every level. The Alliance provides professional development, celebrates students' success, commissions research into arts education, advocates for sound education policy, and educates the public and decision-makers about the powerful impact that arts education has on students.

One of the highlights of our year is the annual Fine Arts Education Day at the state capitol. Students from across the state converge on Jefferson City to perform in the Rotunda for appreciative audiences. They also have the chance to then meet with their Senators and Representatives and talk about the importance of their arts education experiences. During the day we also recognize outstanding students and teachers with a variety of awards in arts education. For more information please click on the Fine arts Education Day tab on the right side of this page.

The Alliance also commissions research on the impact of arts education on students. Our most recent project is detailed in " Arts Education Still Makes A Difference in Missouri Schools" published in 2015. The study followed a similarly title report from 2010. To access the encouraging results please use the Arts Education Research tab on the right.

Finally, the Alliance has created an ambitious series of Professional Development workshops that will be hosted around the state. These sessions cater not only to the arts educator, but also administrators and teachers of all subjects who want to incorporate the arts into their teaching.

The Missouri Alliance for Arts Education gratefully acknowledges the support of Missouri Arts Council, Francis Family Foundation, Brewer Science, and many individual donors from across the state.
