We are wrapping up⭐ National Arts In Education Week ⭐ with a testimonial from Amy Mason, the former principal of Madison County Elementary School. She was named Alabama's 2021 NAESP National Distinguished Principal by the Alabama Association of Elementary School Administrators (AAESA).

"My participation in the band program from grades 4-12 solidified my love and appreciation for music. As a drum major during my senior year, it prepared me to lead large groups of people on and off the field which eventually prepared me to become a teacher and elementary school principal for 22 years!" #BecauseOfArtsEd

⭐National Arts In Education Week⭐ today features a testimonial from Dana M. Gillis, Senior Facilitator at Transcend – The Fearless Company.

"Every day I spent as an organizational leader, an Army officer, federal investigator, or businessperson, I drew on the lessons I learned as a student musician. I learned the value of teamwork and the heights you can reach when you join others to achieve a goal. By being inspired, I learned how to inspire others. I would not be the person I am today without all I learned from teachers dedicated to introducing students like me to the joy of making music." #BecauseOfArtsEd

⭐National Arts In Education Week⭐ is a celebration recognizing the transformative power of the arts in education. Today we feature a testimonial from retired orthopedic surgeon Dr. F. Calame Sammons M.D.. Dr. Sammons is a member of the band The Unorthodocs.

"My first immersion in Art was at Vanderbilt University. I needed a “good” grade to help get into medical school. I decided to enroll in an Art History course. It opened my eyes to evaluating, interpreting, and appreciating all art, from cave drawings to the Italian Masters.

I believe that it helped me to develop similar skills in evaluating patients in my Orthopedic practice. What you see on the outside may not tell the whole story.
You need to dig deeper. Medicine is an Art, not just a science." #BecauseOfArtsEd

"Growing up in Fairhope, Alabama, the arts and artists surrounded me. I genuinely believe this exposure helped round out the logical side of my engineering brain, allowing me to discover more creative solutions and appreciate elegant design.

September 12 – 17 is ⭐National Arts In Education Week⭐ and we'll be celebrating all week long! This week is a national celebration recognizing the transformative power of the arts in education. Today we feature a testimonial from Ethan Couch, co-founder and manager of @yellowhammer_brewing.

How has the art education you received made a difference in your life?

"I remember going to see a gallery show when I was in middle school that blew me away. The sculptures invoked questions in my mind and impressed me with the quality of workmanship. I never forgot that feeling of being in awe of how something was made and what it meant to me symbolically. I pursued a degree in studio art in college because the creative process and implementation made complete sense to me on Day 1. In every art class, I was able to think creatively and grow upon my successes and failures from the prior classes. This process gave me the capabilities to become an entrepreneur. To know that if I keep working, and learn from my failures, I could make something beautiful and/or functional."

Ensuring Access to The Arts

Our Mission

Arts Huntsville stimulates and supports community creativity and engagement by advancing the arts, entertainment and culture to enrich quality of life, education, and economic development in the greater Huntsville metropolitan region.

Our vision is Huntsville as the premier mid-sized city for the arts, entertainment, and culture in the Southeastern United States.

Our Programs

Arts Huntsville directly impacts Huntsville/Madison County residents through four core programs:

• Arts Community Support & Promotions
• Arts Education
• Community Events
• Public Art

Arts Huntsville also serves as an “umbrella” organization for its members, providing them with resources and tools that ensure their survival and expansion. Members include more than 200 arts organizations, individual artists, arts patrons, and other arts-minded non-profits and companies. Arts Huntsville’s services ensure ongoing community access to the arts and the continued success and growth of our local arts community.

There are many ways to engage with local arts, entertainment and culture and support our mission of improving our community through enabling access to high quality arts programming. Contact our office to learn how.

  • Arts Education

    Learning about (and through) the arts gives children and adults of all ages more than mere knowledge, it helps them understand themselves and the world around them in a way nothing else can. While substantial progress has been made incorporating the arts into our schools, there is still much to be done. Visit our Arts Education page to learn more about the North Alabama Arts Education Collaborative and access resources for educators.

  • Public Art

    Are you curious about the sculptures and murals you can discover right in your community? Want to know more about the Public Art Plan being developed with the City of Huntsville? Visit our Public Art page.
