Arts are essential.

Why is Any Given Child important?

Arts are an essential element of a complete education, helping students...

Stay in School = Succeed in School

Succeed in Work = Succeed in Life

Students engaged in the arts are:

  • 4x more likely to be recognized for academic achievement.

  • 4x more likely to participate in a math or science fair.

  • 3x more likely to win an award for school attendance.

Low-income students who are highly engaged in the arts are more than twice as likely to graduate from college as their peers with no arts education.
