Last week, the Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE) released the results of the 2013 District of Columbia Comprehensive Assessment System exam (DC CAS). We’d like to extend our heartfelt congratulations to our Art Links to Learning partner schools—Inspired Teaching Demonstration Public Charter School, Takoma Education Campus, and Tyler Elementary for their fantastic improvements! Well done! We’re looking forward to another exciting year of integrating the arts with you.

On May 14 and 16 we wrapped up another successful year of the Art Links to Learning: Museum-in-Residence program with two artists’ receptions for 350 students from Tyler Elementary School and Takoma Education Campus. Students enjoyed seeing their work in the current Young Artists Exhibition and venturing out into the galleries before school’s out for summer!
