When the arts are taught in school, educational opportunities are enhanced as students learn ways to process information and to express themselves. Art programs like the Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program are a tremendous benefit to Utah students.
Arts education helps students solve problems creatively, rather than through rote memorization. It helps students understand themselves and others more completely. Arts instruction gives students a reason to learn math, science, language arts and social studies.
When people invest in art in education, they’re creating out-of-the-box thinkers that aren’t just worried about black and white test scores on paper. Education without art would never be 100% education— it would always fall short.
