Celebrate Arts in Education Month in March - An Education without the ARTS is Incomplete!

Art is an important “A” that we love to add to STEM and make it STEAM! Arts education empowers our students to increase their self-confidence and self-understanding. It also enhances their communication skills, and provides improved cognition. Read our blog to learn more about how you can celebrate and bring a spotlight to Arts Education in your local communities.
