BEHOLD, THE POWER OF ART EDUCATION!
Research has shown that art education fosters problem solving, critical reasoning, curiosity, higher test scores, creative thinking, interpersonal skills, resourcefulness and self-esteem. Art making becomes a means for students to express ideas and life experiences. The visual arts empower and encourage students to discover and express the beauty of their voice within.
