Executive Director’s Letter 8/30/2022

It’s Back to School Time! For information on early dismissals, transportation, schedules and vaccinations, school supplies and lunch menus, internet access and more, please visit the following websites: Baltimore City Public Schools, Anne Arundel County Public Schools, Baltimore County Public Schools, Carroll County Public Schools, Harford County Public Schools, or Howard County Public Schools

Amid all the hustle and bustle of your transition, remember that your child’s arts and recreation programs, during and outside of school hours, play an important role in their growth and education. In addition to benefiting from excellent art, music, dance, theater, and other creative arts teachers, area cultural organizations offer many opportunities for children to participate and engage with the world around them.

That includes Port Discovery Children’s Museum, Creative Alliance, The Walters Art Museum, the Benjamin Banneker Museum, and all branches of the Enoch Pratt Free Library and more.

GBCA is so grateful for the work of the Baltimore Arts Education Coalition, Arts Education in Maryland Schools, Arts Every Day, and Arts for Learning Maryland and their fight for equity in delivering high quality arts education in Baltimore City, the region, and the state. Check out their websites to learn more and find out how you can support their efforts on behalf of Maryland’s children.

All my best,
