Why the arts matter to education
The performing arts can make us feel
—exhilarated, nostalgic, entertained, joyous. But they can also help us succeed
, as students, professionals, and citizens of the world.
The arts help very young children
learn critical skills—creativity, collaboration, math, language arts, imagination.
The arts prepare young professionals
to be innovative thinkers and creative problem-solvers—traits that today’s competitive business world values highly.
The arts help all of us
understand and embrace cultural diversity as the language of an interconnected world community.
