It’s Youth Art Month! Here are some facts about Arts in Education:
A student involved in the arts is four times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement. Students who take four years of arts and music classes average almost 100 points higher on their SAT scores than students who take only one-half year or less. 72 percent of business leaders say that creativity is the number one skill they are seeking when hiring. With so much concern about anxiety and students’ mental health, it is important to note how the arts can help. Research from the University of Western Australia suggests exposure to the arts for just two hours every week can improve mental health and overall well-being. Whether active (hands-on work or studio practice) or passive (viewing or discussing art), the benefits are undeniable.
Fun fact about an artist:
How many paintings did Vincent Van Gogh sell in his lifetime?
--Mrs. Parisi, Art Teacher
"Art must be life — it must belong to everybody." - Marina Abramović
