Welcome to Arts Education in Maryland Schools

Arts Education in Maryland Schools (AEMS) is a 501(c)(3) Maryland Non-Profit Organization committed to ensuring that all students in the state of Maryland have access to high quality arts education by mobilizing power to communities through advocacy programs, professional and leadership programs, and resource building and sharing. We envision a public education system in Maryland that supports, cultivates, nurtures, and uplifts ALL students’ creativity through a robust arts education experience so that they can thrive in a healthy society.

artlook® Maryland

AEMS’s artlook® Maryland is a free-to-use, easy-to-navigate web platform that paints the portrait of arts education in your community. By visually mapping data about arts access and resources, artlook® Maryland will allow for unprecedented transparency about arts education in Maryland’s public schools and drive connections between educators, arts partners, advocates, and funders. artlook® Maryland is launching in the pilot districts of Baltimore City and Anne Arundel, Montgomery, and Queen Anne’s counties.
