To improve, enhance, and promote arts education in Florida.


For every child in every school to have a well-rounded education that includes a comprehensive, sequential, high-quality program of arts instruction; and for all Florida communities to have broad-based cultural programs available to support lifelong learning in and through the arts.

Our Mission and Vision is based on the premise that the arts:

  • are basic to a complete education;
  • are essential to the vitality and quality of life in schools and communities;
  • address both cultural inclusiveness and diversity;
  • are powerful in the education of students with special needs; and
  • have a positive impact on student achievement.

Since 1981, Florida Alliance for Arts Education (FAAE) has united educators, artists, community leaders, concerned citizens, arts education organizations, arts institutions and corporate partners to ensure Florida’s students a complete education that includes the arts. Through the arts, the quality of life for all Floridians is improved and enhanced. Programs and opportunities of Florida Alliance for Arts Education reach all corners of the state and touch thousands of lives each year as they bring schools and communities together to improve, enhance and promote arts education.
