We seek out financial support and grants to help local artistic endeavors.
Every year the arts programs seem to have their budgets cut. It's time to step up. We need to voice our concerns to school officials. The arts not only enrich our lives, communities and culture, but they are vital to a child’s education. A strong arts education promotes the skills children need to be successful. A growing number of studies presents compelling evidence connecting student learning in the arts to a wide array of academic and social benefits. For example, exposure to art education promotes self-directed learning, improves school attendance, and sharpens critical and creative skills. Additionally, research has shown that what students learn in the arts may help them to master other subjects, such as reading, math, or social studies. The evidence is clear: the study of the arts contributes to student achievement and success in school and beyond.
