To view an updated and expanded ArtScan (2014) please visit the ArtScan website, a project of the Arts Education Partnership.

ECS has developed Artscan to support the analysis of state-level policies (in statute or code) related to the arts in education. From this database, you can generate profiles of the state policies for arts education in individual states, and view compiled reports on state policies for the arts education. Click on one of the options below to access and view reports from the database.


The Artscan database is supported by an anonymous funder.
