Arts Instructional Resources

SEADAE (State Education Agency Directors of Arts Education) is working to build a repository of online instructional resources for the field.

As a signature initiative, members of SEADAE have been contributing their departments' online learning webpages to the A.I.R. Map, a state-by-state arts instructional resource.

Be sure to follow your local and state laws and guidelines regarding online resources. Approval and use of online resources is determined at the local (district) level.

We remind you to be cautious of:

1. Digital resources that require teachers or students to create online accounts (whether verified through email or not)

2. Digital resources that have copyright restrictions (many of these may also require account creation)

3. Digital resources being shared by companies that have temporarily opened their paid for resources to use for free for a limited time (some but not all of these can also require account creation)


SEADAE does not mandate or prescribe particular curricula or lesson plans. This site contains links to learning resources created and maintained by other public and private organizations. This information is provided for the visitor’s convenience and is included here as an example of the many resources that educators may find helpful and use at their option. SEADAE does not control or guarantee the accuracy, relevance, timeliness, or completeness of this outside information. Further, the inclusion of links to items is not intended to endorse any views expressed, or materials provided.
