Why Join Fine Arts?

#1. Improves Grades & attendance

Involvement in the arts – music, creative writing, drawing, dance, etc. have shown to improve a student’s attendance (which in turn) increases high school graduation rates, and schools with active arts programs do better at standardized test scores than their counterparts.

#2. Source of Physical & Mental Health

Research suggests that exposure to the arts for just two hours every week can drastically improve your mental health and overall well-being. Exploring art forms makes us human, especially in times where social skills are declining.

#3. Builds Confidence & Fosters Creativity

The Fine Arts are an investment into our culture and community. Participants exit programs equipped with skills such as responsibility, self-assurance, teamwork, and help develop critical thinking and communication abilities.
