ArtsArts

Art is a vehicle of the human spirit, and learning to appreciate and participate in art is essential preparation for a vital, well-balanced life. Furthermore, the arts help develop “right-brain” function and encourage “outside-the-box” thinking that is rarely a focus in standard academic classes.
