And it’s abundantly clear that kids and youth in underserved or low-income communities suffer the most from program cuts, even though research shows consistently that they benefit most from arts engagement in school. Next week is National Arts Education Week, and it’s a great time to call attention to why this matters.

    An S.A. on What's Important and A Challenge

    posted by Alecia Kintner On Aug 25, 2015
    I find the last days of summer to be highly reflective. My dad used to take the entire month of August as vacation, a time of restoration and planning for a highly demanding year ahead. For a kid, this was a great thing: consecutive weeks with parents in a place of serenity, away from the stresses of the normal routine. I will treasure the memory of painting side-by-side with my daughter...
