Commonly used to reflect and record humanity, acting, music, and mixed media art are critical programs. Creating art can also improve motivation, concentration, confidence, and teamwork which helps our students live a more complete and enriching life. Despite funding challenges, school administrators are continually finding ways to continue these remarkable programs. If you are a supporter of the arts, reach out to your local school district and ask for how you can support your local school programs.
