You already know how much we love arts education, so we thought we'd turn the floor over to some other sources. For more information about the importance of arts education check out any of the links below!
Why the arts, you may ask? The arts don't always pay well. They aren't science or math or computer programming. What the arts are is an intricate study of the things that make up life. They teach us skills like critical thinking, communication, and creativity. Furthermore, they link together all of the things we learn in school - physics behind turns in ballet, the history and literature behind theatre, angles and lines in painting. Art allows students to connect with these subjects in a way that's fun and engaging. Art is the study of all studies. Art changes lives.
