May ’16 Young Audiences Community Partners

OUR MISSION IS TO CREATE ART EXPERIENCES THAT INSPIRE YOUNG PEOPLE, EXPAND LEARNING, AND ENLIVEN COMMUNITIES. WHY?

Art education is both a catalyst and a haven for self-discovery and self-expression. Deeply engaging with the arts gives children the building blocks to make meaning out of their experiences and teaches them to connect with others in and beyond their own communities.

THE FACTS:

*Students who have art in their lives do better in school and in life than those who don’t. (Catterall et al., 1999)

*By focusing their instruction on process rather than product, teaching artists help children develop critical 21st century learning and innovation skills. (Burton et al., 2004)

*Teaching artists provide students with compelling models of achievement and success. (President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities, 2011)
