by Priscilla B. Dewey

Compiled by the former director of the Charles River Creative Arts Program, this handbook is a step-by-step guide to the operation of a program that the National Endowment for the Arts designated a model arts education project.

The Multi-Arts Handbook details every aspect of the program and contains samples of successful budgets, course descriptions, administrative forms, press releases, grant proposals, and salary schedules. It has been used in national seminars for arts educators and administrators and is a comprehensive tool for any arts education program. You may purchase a copy for $50. Please see our "Order Info" page for details.

Our summer program has taken off - we’re turning them away
this year. The handbook has been an important resource for us.
It helped enormously with establishing our Creative Arts program.
— Sara Stevenson, Director of Country Day Creative Arts Program at the Metairie Park Country Day School, Metaririe, LA
