Interactive Art

"There’s evidence that kids get better at math when they’ve taken classes that make the connection between STEM and the arts-and that when they’ve had certain courses in the arts, kids can grow in self-confidence, and in linguistic skills, as well as in creativity … (and) states now have wider options for the kind of interventions they can put in place-including options like the Turnaround Arts Initiative funded by the Department. I’ve had the opportunity to see struggling schools make real change by infusing the arts into their school models."

How Integrating Arts Into Other Subjects Makes Learning Come Alive

"Art has long been recognized as an important part of a well-rounded education – but when it comes down to setting budget priorities, the arts rarely rise to the top."
