Webinar: The Arts and Socio Emotional Learning: Leveraging Arts Instruction as Essential in Recovery

April 29, 2020 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm


News reports and social media are making the arts a priority and, as one prominent newscaster exclaimed, the Arts are “food for the soul”. We know that dance, music theatre, and visual arts are the way to counter the anxiety, lift our spirits and connect us to others.  Before this crisis we were already on a path to positioning arts education as a solution partner to socio-emotional learning. However, the big question on everyone’s mind is: will our decision makers remember the value of the arts when we come out of this crisis and balancing budgets are the priority?

Join celebrated author, and Director of UCLA Arts & Healing, Ping Ho as she reviews the language we can all be using as we race from one zoom meeting to another, to gently but firmly remind our decision makers of the vital role of arts education currently and in the future.  Ping will be joined by Jeannine Flores, Arts & STEAM Coordinator for Los Angeles County Office of Education and Dr. Merryl Goldberg, Director of Arts=Opportunity at Cal State San Marcos, who will share specific strategies to integrate as we go about our daily work. We will consider valuable actions to take so we emerge with arts education not only firmly a part of the valued curriculum, but well positioned to grow once we are in recovery.
