"The arts play an important role in building great schools and educational programs."
Marylanders hold a deep appreciation of and involvement with the arts. In a survey conducted by MSAC in 2008, it was found that when a series of creative pursuits are tested—such as drawing or painting, singing or playing an instrument, working on crafts, knitting or sewing, and other similar activities—84% of Marylanders are actively creating or performing either professionally or in their spare time.
An overwhelming majority want the state and its local communities involved in encouraging art and creativity.
Lifelong learning in the arts is the development of structured learning opportunities for all ages that enable the expansion and advancement of knowledge and skills, and are aimed at enhancing the individual's quality of life and society's well-being.
The arts resource list on the left menu bar provides a variety of programs for lifelong learners that accommodate a diversity of interests and time commitments. Here you will find information for all ages: non-credit courses, lectures, workshops, and readings in the fine and applied arts, literary arts, humanities, and liberal arts.
