Whether it’s a passion to perform a porch concert or create in a visual arts medium, Ohioans are continuing to create and inspire.
Our favorite artists teach and learn in Ohio’s schools, and their creative pursuits also are continuing throughout the ordered school-building closure. An effort has been launched to make sure these artistic artifacts are chronicled and curated for all to see.
The Ohio Department of Education has joined other statewide organizations to introduce Ohio Arts at Home. This partnership between the Department, Ohio Alliance for Arts Education, Ohio Music Education Association, Ohio Art Education Association, Ohio Dance, Ohio Educational Theatre Association and Ohio Arts Council promotes the creativity, resiliency and social-emotional power that the arts continue to foster in the lives of every Ohioan.
As part of this effort, all Ohioans are invited to explore and showcase the music, visual art, dance, drama and media art education occurring at home. Post a picture of your work or a performance video on social media and use the hashtag #OhioArtsAtHome.
Visit this webpage to see some example virtual art exhibits from schools, and download the Ohio Arts at Home logo to place on your social media images. From treble clefs to colorful canvases to sidewalk chalk, it will be exciting to see the custom creations from Ohio’s learning communities.
