Students in Indianapolis celebrate National Arts and Education Week



Indianapolis, Indiana – National Arts and Education Week, which began on Monday and runs through Friday, is being observed by students in Indianapolis. Through House Resolution 275, Congress declared the week a national holiday in 2010.

On the website, art educators said, “Whether you are a student, educator, parent, or principal, you can find a way to celebrate the arts in education during National Arts in Education Week.”

Edison School of the Arts, Inc. 47 in Indianapolis encourages excellence through the integration of the arts as a way to enjoy art every day.

“Edison School of the Arts offers a unique blend of arts and academics that nurtures the whole child. Here, students are not just exposed to the arts, they learn through the arts, engaging in a creative process that deepens understanding and fosters healthy risk-taking,” the school says on its website.

More than 600 children in kindergarten through eighth grade attend the magnet school. Art is incorporated into the core curriculum by educators to encourage creativity. Digital, visual, and performing arts are prioritized heavily while giving challenging academics.

“In addition to our arts-focused approach, we offer rigorous academics with specialized programs like web design/coding, English language learner services, gifted and talented/high ability instruction, and STEM/STEAM programs,” leaders explained on their website.

Students at the Edison School have access to a dance studio, a black box theater, and a computer lab. Each student has the opportunity to express themselves through a variety of disciplines, such as puppetry, pottery, and painting.

The lottery for submissions has ended. The application period for the 2024–2025 academic year will start on November 1 and end on January 24. The results will be made public in February. You will need your student’s ID number to complete an application if your child is presently enrolled in grades K–12 at IPS or at a participating charter school.
