Hello Fine Arts Advocates,
Thank you so much for all of your incredible work today...what a great day for Fine Arts education in Iowa!   Your dedication to the students of our state is greatly appreciated. You can feel so good about what you accomplished today, we most certainly made a statement for the future of Fine Arts education.  It would be great to send a thank you email to the legislators you visited today.  If any of them had concerns, or had need of further information, please let me know and I will take care of it.

Thank you so much, your support is greatly appreciated!!

The Iowa Alliance for Arts Education is sponsoring the second annual Fine Arts Advocacy Day on Wednesday, January 28,2015,  at the State Capitol in Des Moines.  The purpose of the day is to advocate for Fine Arts instruction in Iowa schools and to ask for legislative support for the addition of Fine Arts to the Iowa Core.  As part of the advocacy material for the event, IAAE is once again compiling a testimonial booklet that will be given to all 150 Iowa legislators.  The booklet will be a compilation of the responses to the question, "How has Fine Arts instruction impacted your life?". IAAE is hoping to collect responses from citizens in all 99 Iowa counties.  Testimonials Needed! If you would like to submit a testimonial, please click on the following link:
