The Kax Herberger Center for Children + the Arts


This section of A.R.T.S, the Artswork website, includes arts education documents; carefully screened materials from schools and teachers; and screened, annotated links to national and international sites. The focus has been on materials generated in Arizona, but we are looking for outstanding arts education materials from across the nation. To be included, materials must be based on national or state arts standards, have substance, and be well written.

Materials may be downloaded for classroom use, but may not be used in published materials or copied for use on other sites unless permission is granted.
