Educator Resources

The New York City Department of Education has a wealth of useful information for arts teachers and educators in New York City public schools. Please browse our website and learn what students should know and be able to do in the arts, about competitions and scholarships for your students, and how to help them prepare a winning visual arts portfolio. We also have information on grants in the arts for your programs, cultural exhibitions and performances to experience with your students, and professional development opportunities in dance, music, theater, and the visual arts, and a learning walkthrough in the arts to help you assess the progress your students are making in arts learning.

If you cannot find what you are looking for on this site, please e-mail artsandspecialprojects@schools.nyc.gov and someone will be sure to respond to your request!
