NYSATA Works for Art Education

Part of NYSATA's mission is to be the voice of over 6,000 art educators across New York State. We consult with and provide content area expertise for the State Education Department; collaborate on arts based initiatives; represent NY at the national level; monitor art education trends statewide and nationally; and provide a host of programs and opportunities to highlight student achievement in the visual arts.

NYSATA advocacy efforts are most often aimed at the state level, monitoring and influencing arts legislation and policies that impact programs in the schools. It is also important that all art educators become advocates in their own school, district and community. Make sure your parents, administrators, community members and legislators are aware of the work you are doing in your classroom and the success your students are achieving.
