New Hampshire youth create artwork to bring messages of hope and connectedness to neighbors in assisted living facilities 

Dear New Hampshire Arts Educators, 


Our neighbors in assisted living facilities across the state are experiencing one of the most vulnerable times of their lives. They are at high risk for contracting the corona virus and they are unable to be with their loved ones. Please join this statewide effort to send them artwork and messages of hope and appreciation. Participating teachers can send student artwork to a paired long term care facility. Learn More.

Looking Forward: New Curricular Arts Standards!

Commissioner of Education, Frank Edelblut, has requested that the 1994 NH  Curricular Framework for the Arts (commonly known as the “Arts Standards”) be updated. This important state work is underway with writing teams in dance, theatre, media, visual arts, and music presenting a first draft to the Commissioner on August 20, 2019. Final recommendations will be presented to the State School Board in March, 2020.
