STATEMENT OF NEED

Art is needed to instill Academic Excellence. Many low socio economically disadvantaged communities and communities of color experience obstacles that prohibit success, development and growth in areas of education, mental health and healing, employment and lifelong achievement. Artistic purist and participation plays many roles in hurdling many of those obstacles. Research has demonstrated that children are more successful in STEM classes when connecting STEM and the arts and additionally children who are exposed to art experience significant growth in linguistics, self-confidence and creativity-all critical for students competing in a global economy. (Eger, 2016)

Art is needed to promote Intellectual Achievement There is also strong evidence that states that a deficiency of visual and tactile stimuli in the environment of children affect reading performance and intellectual achievement. (COHEN, 1974)

Art Education Access is under supported...The Creative House provides accessible free art education, activities and events for children and adults. Art access is crucial to economically disadvantaged communities. Despite all the evidence that demonstrate the impressive benefits of arts education, access to art education is at an all-time low. Although art program are being funded by the states, a recent study has found that between 60 and 70 percent of the value of grants awarded from 1987 to 2004 went to institutional support, mostly for arts organizations, and to the creation, exhibition, and preservation of art. Less than 10 percent was specifically devoted to arts learning. Policymakers have made little room for the arts in the public school curriculum (Zakaras & Lowell, 2008)

Art preserves Cultural Awareness The Creative House practices cultural awareness and sensitively. Research on preserving culture suggest that art keeps sacred practices and traditions that connect their community to history, earth, and their ancestors alive and thriving. Art is Therapy Lastly, many families in disadvantaged communities suffer from mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, Alzheimer’s and PTSD. Art is an excellent form of therapy to assist in battling such mental health diagnoses. (Malchiodi, 2014)
