Arts Advocacy

Teachers often have to advocate the importance of the arts in the curriculum and the benefits for their students.

“The arts are not just a nice thing to have or to do if there is free time or if one can afford it. Rather, paintings and poetry, music and fashion, design and dialogue, they all define who we are as a people and provide an account of our history for the next generation.” Michelle Obama ..For more great quotes, references and info Read more
