7th and 8th grade language arts students from Calverton Elementary/Middle School partnered with Peabody Institute.
The mission of Arts Every Day is to strengthen learning by making arts
education and cultural experiences an integral part of the education of all
Baltimore City Public Schools (City Schools) students.
We believe that all
Baltimore City School Students deserve access to inspired teaching and arts
based learning. We work to ensure all Baltimore City School Students have access
to the arts (drama, dance, music, and the visual arts) every day through arts education,
arts-integrated experiences, and arts-integrated instruction. Through
partnership development, we work to eliminate the barriers that prevent
students from accessing Baltimore’s rich and diverse community of artists,
cultural organizations, and arts institutions.
Now, after visiting the BMA, I am more open to the possibilities of art. I learned that
art can be an idea, not only a portrayal. I used to think that art was
appreciated by how beautiful the images were but now I know that the idea matters
just as much.

Arts Every Day
currently serves 35 Baltimore City Public Schools and will reach an estimated
16,400 students and 1,200 educators. When a school is accepted into the
program, Arts Every Day commits to a long-term partnership with the teachers
and staff of each school addressing leadership and programmatic needs to build
a strong school wide arts integration initiative. Schools returning to our
program have partnered with Arts Every Day for an average of 3.5 years.
Arts Every Day provides a framework of progress for
building and sustaining arts integration initiatives year after year providing
incentive for growth in the funding for arts experiences. New schools receive a
base level of support of $5 per student and work towards a maximum of $10 per
student as the school succeeds in integrating the arts across grade level and
