Arts Education is Essential

Why do the Arts matter? Why do we need Art education?

Teaching and learning will never quite be the same in our post COVID-19 world. However, our commitment to provide rich and varied educational experiences remains unwavering. The arts played an important role in these tumultuous times and will continue to do so for all students, including the traditionally underrepresented, those with special needs, and from low-income families. Here's why:

  • "Arts education supports the social and emotional well-being of students, whether through distance or in person."
  • "Arts education nurtures the creation of a welcoming school environment where students can express themselves in a safe and positive way."
  • "Arts education is part of a well-rounded education for all students as understood and supported by federal and state policymakers."
