Below is a link to a presentation (by Kids Count Pediatrics) on the role that art plays in a child’s development.

The visual and performing arts are not just fluff or something extra to do if time allows. The arts are an important part of a child’s education. Participation in the arts:

  • improves academic achievement (especially in math and language arts)
  • motivates children to succeed in school
  • relates to higher scores on the SAT
  • improves abstract thinking skills

We are very proud to partner with the Foothills Arts Council. Our students will regularly visit the Foothills Arts Council to view and discuss exhibits; and our two organizations will support each other in arts programming.
