Who We Are and What We Do
The Alliance is a non-profit organization that supports arts education in our schools, provides professional development for teachers and promotes public awareness of the importance of the arts in every school for every child.
We present Fine Arts Education Day at the State Capitol each spring and we partner with the Missouri School Boards' Association to recognize an outstanding school district with the MAAE/MSBA School District of Distinction in Arts Education Award.
The Alliance releases landmark studies such as "Arts Education Makes a Difference in Missouri Schools" to demonstrate the impact the arts have on district graduation and attendance rates, disciplinary infractions rates, and language arts and mathematics test scores on the Missouri Assessment Program (MAP) measures of student progress.
The Missouri Alliance for Arts Education is supported through generous grants from the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency, and the Francis Family Foundation. The MAAE is also supported by the visual and performing arts educator associations and organizations listed below. We are also supported by organizations and by individuals--people just like YOU!
