Why the Arts Matter in Our Schools


Why Do the Arts Matter?

Arts in our classrooms as part of everyday learning foster well-rounded graduates who enter college and the workforce with creative skills and a competitive edge! For New Hampshire students to fulfill their potential, learning in and through the arts is essential.

Studies show that arts-based learning teaches creative problem-solving and cultural awareness; offers multiple pathways to understanding for different learners; and increases connections and engagement between teachers, students and the community that surrounds them.

Creativity and innovation are essential skills in the 21st century: please join us in celebrating arts in our schools while spreading the word to our elected officials and our communities about how essential the arts are in our classrooms.
