About ArtsEdSearch:

ArtsEdSearch is a project of the Arts Education Partnership (AEP), and builds on Critical Links: Learning in the Arts and Student Academic and Social Development, a compendium of research that AEP published in 2002 exploring the impact of arts education on student success in school, life, and work. Critical Links identified a range of outcomes of arts learning—including students’ development of skills for creative thinking, problem solving, communication, and collaboration—which are of central interest today, not only to the arts education field, but more broadly to education policymakers and leaders concerned with preparing students to succeed in the changing contexts of the 21st Century. AEP has developed ArtsEdSearch as a resource for policymakers and education stakeholders and leaders to better understand and articulate the role that arts education can play in meeting this challenge. ArtsEdSearch is designed to be an interactive, living resource that will grow and evolve along with arts and education research and practice.
