Instant Arts Classroom Funds
What are Instant Arts Classroom Funds?
These funds are granted to teachers to fund arts projects throughout the school year. Teachers can use funds to take their student on a field trip to a cultural event or museum, or bring a teaching artist into the classroom!
The arts are essential. They teach students innumerable lessons—practice makes perfect, small differences can have large effects, collaboration leads to creativity. The arts also teach children that there a several paths to take when approaching problems and that all problems can have more than one solution.
Research has also shown impressive benefits of arts education on entire school culture—especially student motivation, attitudes, and attendance. These programs are even shown to have positive effects on test scores in other areas, specifically math, science, and reading. Numerous reports discuss the ways that increased access and involvement in arts education encourage students to stay in school, succeed in school, succeed in work, and succeed in life.
Arts Quincy is committed to making the arts available to every student. For more information on our Instant Arts Classroom Funds, contact us at 217-222-3432 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
