Post-pandemic, arts in education goes full steam ahead.
For anyone who has ever uttered, “There’s nothing to do tonight,” that person is not looking hard enough. Jacksonville is fortunate to have strong fine arts offerings and even more fortunate because it begins in the schools and is supported by the Jacksonville Public Library, patrons of the arts, and the Jaxsons who mark their calendars and make the effort to come out and enjoy the many plays, concerts, performances, art exhibits, and more.
We appreciate the arts administrators who shared their schools’ success stories and coming attractions: Duval County Public Schools (DCPS) Fine Arts Departments, Atlantic Coast High School, the Bolles School, Bishop Kenny High School, Douglas Anderson School of the Arts, the Episcopal School of Jacksonville, and Jacksonville University. Thanks to these schools and others, you need never utter, “There’s nothing to do in Jacksonville!”
