Quality arts learning improves students’ creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, and communication skills — the 4Cs in the 21st Century Learning Framework. In this global age, our children must be prepared to find creative solutions, consider other points of view, and express themselves clearly to solve the challenges of an ever-expanding and interdependent world. Research continues to demonstrate that quality arts learning from early childhood through 12th grade has lasting benefits related to cognitive, socio-emotional and physical development. Do not leave your children behind!
