There are so many people out there that really do believe in arts education and the values it has on students and people of all ages. I come across these people all the time: at my school, at workshops, online, across the country and down the street.
Music and the arts are being fed to our children when they are babies, toddlers, in preschool and as they grow older and older, their arts education (including exploration and appreciation) gets less and less. We understand what this type of creative expression does for our children's (and our) happiness, balance and sense of self.
Wouldn't it be wonderful if there was a public community for that to happen? A community where people anywhere and any age could share ideas, work together and help bring arts education and integration into the forefront? I would LOVE to see that happen.
