I felt the need to start this business when I saw art education being cut from so many of our public schools. I have designed the entire curriculum to meet both Washington State Standards and the National Standards for the Art Education. Some may ask "Why is art education important?"
Research shows that involvement in arts education can help ensure a child's success in school and life! America for the reports that young people who consistently participate in art programs are:
4 times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement
3 times more likely to be elected to class office within their schools
4 times more likely to participate in a math and science fair
4 times more likely to win an award for writing an essay or poem
Who is Smart with Art?
