March is Arts in Education month at the Creative Arts Guild and one of the most anticipated celebrations of Arts in Education is our annual Spring for the Arts luncheon. On March 19th we will host our 15th annual fashion show, luncheon and fashion art market at The Farm in support of all of our Arts in Education programming and most especially, our partnership between the Creative Arts Guild and the O.N. Jonas Foundation. The Guild’s Arts in Education programs consist of our internal educational classes and workshops in dance, visual arts, music, and gymnastics; field trip offerings; arts scholarships; our annual Student Arts Expo; and our newest Arts in Education venture – Creative Connections – our annual professional development conference for all our area school arts educators in all arts disciplines. Our coveted partnership with the O.N. Jonas Foundation provides Artists in Residence opportunities for our area students - striving to ensure that every child in our community has the opportunity to participate in the arts. The partnership is committed to broadening student arts exposure and education in grades pre-K through 12 in Dalton Public, Whitfield County and Murray County Schools, as well as the Elbert Shaw Regional Detention Center, Crossroads Academy, Mountain Creek Academy and Northstar School. In 2019, these arts education programs created nearly 40,000 arts experiences for the students enrolled in these schools.
