Art: Essential in a Well-Rounded Education

Presented by Cheri Sterman, Crayola Education Director; Shauna Kauffman, Principal, Arnold Elementary

Education leaders know the impact art has on student achievement and engagement. Our challenge is to convince others. Presenters Cheri Sterman and Shauna Kauffman shared insights on how art impacts learning and how to articulate key messages for effective art advocacy.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Explore how to convey compelling art advocacy messages
  • See students’ perspective on how art impacts learning
  • Use a rhetorical framework to persuade others on the essential role of art in a well-rounded education.

Crayola Webinar Giveaway: Fifty educators who share photos of their advocacy postcards, inspired by this webinar, will receive a complimentary thank you gift from Crayola: 12 boxes of 5 ct. Crayola No Drip Paint Pens. While we’d love to see your submissions wherever you live, this gift can only be shipped to members in the U.S. and Canada.
