Iowa Fine Arts Education Summit - Requesting Your Input

The Iowa Department of Education, Iowa Arts Council, and Iowa Alliance for Arts Education are excited to announce plans to co-sponsor the first ever Iowa Fine Arts Education Summit, a one-day professional learning event, for Thursday June 20, 2019.  The Summit will celebrate the 2017 adoption of Iowa's Fine Arts Standards and offer professional development around our new standards for all five fine arts disciplines - dance, media arts, music, theatre, and visual arts.  
 
The Iowa Fine Arts Leadership Team is in the process of developing this summer’s Iowa Fine Arts Education Summit and we’re interested in hearing from you.  Please follow this link to complete a quick, two-minute survey to offer your input on conference topics.  By sharing your input on this convening, we can better tailor this event to suit your needs.  Please take and share this survey with any fellow educators, administrators, or community partners that would be interested in learning more about fine arts education and Iowa's Fine Arts Standards.  Thanks in advance for your assistance and we look forward to seeing you on June 20th!
