Manatee Arts Education Council

Manatee Arts Education Council (MAEC)

The Manatee Arts Education Council (MAEC) supports, promotes, and celebrates PreK-12 arts education, and in this unprecedented time we strongly believe every student in public schools in Manatee County deserves equitable access to high-quality arts education.

In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Manatee Arts Education Council has instituted a 6-month membership from January 15, 2021 – July 15, 2021.

Your membership supports arts-based education in our schools through arts programming and events.

We believe the arts are crucial to supporting the well-being of our students and are critical during this unusual school year.

We invite you to be part of a passionate group of advocates supporting the arts in education. Join MAEC today to stay informed, involved, and engaged in arts education in Manatee County.
