Striving for High-Quality Arts Education

October 1, 2017

This report summarizes the existing literature that explores quality in arts education. Following a general overview of the literature, the first part of the report is organized using the eight Studio to School principles for the pursuit of high-quality, equitable, sustainable arts education programming. Just as the principles are interrelated, there is alsooverlap in the literature on quality in arts education. Existing literature also provides more detail about particular aspects of arts education — such as those who provide arts education (e.g., teaching artists) and their contribution to quality. Therefore, the summaries for each principle are of varying length, breadth and depth. The second part of the report is an annotated bibliography that describes the context and relevant findings for each report included in thisliterature review.
