I teach visual art in Cleveland, Ohio and I love the Ohio Alliance for Arts Education. They provide the best information, resources, and professional development. Their work with teachers, administrators, higher ed, and arts organizations is first class! Check out the weekly Arts on Line at www.OAAE.net I am a member and encourage every arts educator to join too. The best $40 I've ever spent.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

more than a dozen professional development sessions!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

help them increase their income so that they could do even more to support arts education in Ohio.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the dedication of the executive director. She is like a personal coach without a fee.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

outstanding. A great group of people who are passionate about their work.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

have statewide professional development for every arts educator in every school.

Ways to make it better...

I had ten of my colleagues joining in the workshops with me so that they could learn with me.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

funding ... state budget cuts and dwindling foundation support are painful.

One thing I'd also say is that...

this organization is related to the Kennedy Center and Americans for the arts.
