Family Our Link to the Past and Our Bridge to the Future ---Alex Haley
Children and their family will create art and explore diverse art forms.
The arts help students develop key "habits of mind" that
include creativity, critical thinking, the ability to pose and solve problems, self discipline and self confidence. These skills are necessary for success in the arts and, once learned, can translate
to success in the other of school and life.
According to research information from the Association for the Advancement of Arts Education, the arts are effective in keeping kids in school, in reaching students at-risk and students with
distinctive learning styles, and in helping to develop a more disciplined educational environment in which students' energy are directed at learning and creating.
The arts not only make education more interesting, they literally make learning accessible to many students for the first time. (How the Arts Contribute to Education. Association for the
