Why Art?

Creation & Innovation: Art is a safe venue for children to express their individuality, dreams and ideas. It is enjoyable and it is a fun way to engage children from all walks of life. 


Improves Student Achievement: Student achievement improves when the arts are included in overall education.  Children who receive art & music are four times more likely to be recognized for academic excellence.


Art Requires Observation, Reflection & Implementation: Creating art requires children to observe their subject matter, interpret art and reflect on how it connects with their life.


Cultural Acceptance: According to the National Art & Education Association, art helps children think globally.  Art exposure of diverse cultures and viewpoints help children accept differences in their peers and in society.


Problem Solving: Art projects force children to create action plans and achieve project goals.  Children learn to utilize their time, materials and individual skills to create and finalize their art creation.
