Celebrate Arts Education Week
Arts education enables students to develop critical thinking and problem solving skills, imagination and creativity, discipline, alternative ways to communicate and express feelings and ideas, and cross-cultural understanding, which supports academic success across the curriculum as well as personal growth outside the classroom. To succeed in todayâ€™s economy, students must masterfully use words, images, sounds, and movement to communicate. As the Nation works to strengthen its foothold in the 21st century global economy, the arts equip students with a creative, competitive edge. So celebrate Arts Education Week.
