Why Art Matters
The arts are essential. They teach students so many important lessons like; practice makes perfect, small differences can have large effects, collaboration leads to creativity. The arts also teach children that there a several paths to take when approaching problems and that all problems can have more than one solution. Research has also shown impressive benefits of arts education on entire school culture—especially student motivation, attitudes, and attendance. In fact, increased access and involvement in arts education encourage students to stay in school, succeed in school, succeed in life, and succeed in work.
