AEMDD Grantee, Los Angeles Unified School District, Featured on TODAY show.

The service provider for the 2010 Los Angeles Unified School District’s Arts in Education Model Development and Dissemination grant (AEMDD) was featured on NBC’s TODAY Show on Thursday, December 20, 2012. The “Getting to the Heart of Christmas” segment showcased Inner City Arts’ use of arts education to impact the lives of students and children. The AEMDD project, Learning and Achieving through the Arts, is comprised of three interconnected strands: (1) standards-based, instruction in the arts, (2) extended professional development and supportive coaching for non-arts classroom teachers to grow their potential as art educators, and (3) activities that encourage whole schools to embrace the arts strategy. Students participate in a variety of art disciplines that are aligned with and support their in-school curriculum. The two entities also partnered in an AEMDD grant awarded in 2005. The link is:
