Inter-City Arts 2016 Impact Report: Transforming Los Angeles Through Arts Education: 2016 Impact Report

California law requires that schools provide music, art, theater and dance at every grade level. Yet, according to the most recent Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) Arts Equity Index, only 35 of over 700 schools in the District received a top rating in providing arts education services to their students. Elementary schools in the poorest parts of the district receive the fewest arts programs. Eleven percent (11%) of LAUSD schools received almost no arts programs or supplies. In 2016, Inner-City Arts provided quality arts education to 5,804 students. Throughout our 28-year history, Inner-City Arts has directly enriched the creative and academic lives of more than 200,000 of the city’s most underserved kids. During this time, more than 10,000 educators have participated in Professional Development programs at Inner-City Arts, extending our impact to more than 2.5 million students.

Situated at the crossroads of LA’s Skid Row and the burgeoning downtown Arts District, Inner-City Arts is well-positioned to produce greater educational equity for our students and opportunities for them to participate in the region’s growing creative economy. This study looks at the data showing how our work has an impact on the students in Los Angeles.

Arts Education Census, Executive Summary 2013-2014 Academic Year: Inspiring Creativity through the Arts

In the Spring of 2014, DCCAH engaged Quadrant Research to work in collaboration with key stakeholders in District of Columbia Public School (DCPS) and District of Columbia Public Charter School (DCPCS) systems to both craft and implement a comprehensive study on the status of arts education. The purpose of this study was to determine the breadth and depth of arts education programming and resources currently in place in the city’s schools in order to create a baseline of knowledge on which to build. This document holds many positive indicators as to what is currently in place in both public school systems in the city. It also includes recommendations for further steps that would complement and supplement what is currently in place to ensure that DCCAH’s goal is realized in the years to come.
Data was collected in six domains i.e. Policies, Student Enrollment, Certi ed Educators, Resources, Course Offerings, and Arts Community Partnerships. Of the schools surveyed:

  • At least 85% of elementary, 50% of middle and 42% of high school students participate in at least one arts course with music and visual arts being the most popular;
  • 96% of DCPS students have arts education courses in their schools, with both music and visual art nearly universally available (85% of students);
  • 91% of DCPS schools have at least one full time arts educator with music and visual art being the most common;
  • All high schools meet the current graduation requirements and 23% of high schools EXCEED them;
  • More than 50% of all schools have arts education goals; • Only 18% of schools reported using outside funding to offset budget decreases;
  • 65% of all DC schools have long term partnerships with cultural organizations. This is significantly higher than what is seen in any other state where this area has been measured; and 
  • 93% of all schools reported providing students field trips to museums, theatres, musical performances and exhibitions to engage students in artistic experiences.

Things to Watch Of the schools surveyed:

  1. Access to dance and theatre opportunities are significantly reduced from music and visual arts;
  2. Arts Courses are not mandatory. Increase participation in all 8 wards;
  3. While most students participate in the arts fewer students are receiving deeper experiences (For example: only 3 middle schools have band and only one has a chorus or orchestra);
  4. More than 60% of schools spend less than $10 per pupil per year for arts instructional materials. At the elementary level, the per-pupil arts spending is only 2.5 cents per day;
  5. Charter schools have significantly lower student participation and fewer course offerings in the arts;
  6. Assessment of student skills and knowledge in the arts is mostly driven by teacher-developed assessments (86%) with less than 1 in 10 schools reporting district developed assessments in the arts and 14% reporting “no assessment”; and
  7. Less than 25% of schools have an arts education strategic plan.

In the Spring of 2014, DCCAH engaged Quadrant Research to work in collaboration with key stakeholders in District of Columbia Public School (DCPS) and District of Columbia Public Charter School (DCPCS) systems to both craft and implement a comprehensive study on the status of arts education.

NAMP Ignite Talks: Drawing Lines

Video

“Drawing Lines” in Austin, Texas was a community art project inspired by historical political changes happening within the city due to electoral redistricting. For this project, an artist or team of artists worked with each council district to co-create an art piece with residents; all of the projects were then brought together as part of a pop-up gallery along Congress Avenue, a major thoroughfare in the city. “Drawing Lines” used the arts to open conversations about the role art plays in exploring notions of place and in bringing together communities of people.
