Our Students Need THE ARTS!

Arts Education is ABSOLUTELY CRUCIAL for the development of our children, from as early as kindergarten all the way up into higher level education.

An education in Fine Arts encourages:
-more developed habits of critical and creative thinking-more perseverance and dedication to a given task
-better psychological and physical health
-self-discipline, intrapersonal and interpersonal skills

A child who participates in Fine Arts is:
-more likely to succeed academically
-more likely to succeed socially
-more able to express his or herself-inclined to be more literate than his or her peersIf America's children are to be sucessful in all aspects of their life, then an education that emphasizes Fine Arts is crucial.
