Arts Education Is Essential
Americans for the Arts joined 52 other national arts and education groups, including the Center For The Arts At River Ridge, in signing a unified statement outlining the importance of arts education for all students in this time of crisis.
In the statement, "Arts Education Is Essential," the signing organizations convey that the arts already have played a pivotal and uplifting role during the pandemic, and that arts education can help students as they return to school. Arts education advocates are encouraged to use this statement to help make the case to district leaders, principals, and other education decisionmakers to include arts education teachers and programs in future school budgets and operations planning.
O ne of the goals of the Center for The Arts is to connect to the community. With a family series, classical music and dance offerings we strive to reach audiences of all ages. In the works, is our exciting Broadway musical series with titles to be announced soon! We strongly believe that the power of the arts can change the world around us for the better.
