Arts & Music

Art and music exposure does more than provide a creative outlet for kids; they provide mental, emotional, and educational benefits. Students involved in the arts have tremendous academic benefits compared to students without exposure to the arts. Art inspires kids to excel in and out of the classroom. It helps students stay in school, increases motivation, improves attitudes and attendance, and improves academic performance.
