WHY ART?

According to ...

Albert Einstein: " Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand."

Maria Rodale: Art makes you think, feel something, look, laugh, realize people are fundamentally the same around the world and throughout time. And it feels so good to make.

LEARNINGLIFTOFF states that the top ten reasons art helps kids learn and grow are as follows. CREATIVITY, IMPROVED ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE, MOTOR SKILLS, CONFIDENCE, VISUAL LEARNING, DECISION MAKING, PERSEVERANCE, FOCUS, COLLABORATIONS & ACCOUNTABILITY.

Mrs. Campbell: "ART promotes CREATIVE PROBLEM SOLVING which is a required skill for the upcoming generations. Creative people change the world."
