The mission of the Office of Arts and Special Projects is to provide New York City public school communities – students, teachers, school leaders and parents – with information and resources that will enable every student to achieve a full education in the arts, based on New York State requirements and standards for arts learning, and guided by New York City’s Blueprint for Teaching and Learning in the Arts, PreK-12. Fulfillment of this mission will lead students to discover the lifelong enjoyment and wonder inherent in the visual arts, music, dance and theater, and will connect them to arts institutions and organizations that exhibit and perform the arts, offer advanced study in the arts, and generate the myriad jobs available in New York City’s arts-related industries that are both financially and personally rewarding.
