Students that are actively engaged in arts education are likely to have higher test scores than those with little to no involvement.
Arts students develop skills needed by the 21st century workforce: critical thinking, creative problem solving, effective communication, teamwork and more.
- Arts involvement allows students to express themselves creatively and bolster their self-confidence.
