Art in Action believes that EVERY child deserves art. Children flourish when imagination and creativity drive learning. Art is transformative; it teaches kids to become visionary; promotes communication and acceptance; and makes us all into healthier, happier, and smarter human beings. And art is just plain fun.
Although we are proud of our accomplishments, we’re troubled that 4 million children still do not receive an arts education, according to the U.S. Department of Education. A lack of funding, training, and commitment should not be a roadblock to turning this belief into reality for ALL kids.
