Research has also shown benefits of arts education on entire school culture—especially student motivation, attitudes, and attendance. Numerous reports discuss the ways that increased access and involvement in arts education encourage students to stay in school, succeed in school, succeed in life, and succeed in work.

According to Americans for the Arts, 72% percent of business leaders say that creativity is the number one skill they are seeking when hiring.
Being involved in the arts helps kids do better in school and feel better about themselves.
