PERFORMING ARTS CENTER:
SOCIAL ACTIVITIES AND COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT
As a nation, we are close to reaching a collective understanding that all students benefit from the opportunity to learn about and experience the Arts. Study of the arts in all its many forms – whether as a stand-alone subject or integrated into the school curriculum- is increasingly accepted as an essential part of achieving success in school, work and life.
Yet, at the same time we celebrate the arts for the value they add to learning and to life, study of the arts is quietly disappearing from our schools. In schools across the country, opportunities for students to participate in high-quality arts instructions and activities are diminishing, the result of shifting priorities and budget cuts. Poor, inner city and rural schools bear a disproportionate share of the losses; studies show that children from low-income families are less likely to be consistently involved in arts activities, or instructions than children from high income families.
