Thank YOU for joining us on our mission SaveTheArts. Where we are creating change in society, One Hat At A Time through our “Every Hat Has A Story” Experience by having people of all ages create and paint their own Walking Billboards Of RadNess.
Public schools across America are cutting off funding for art programs and art is losing its spot in the education curriculum and in some school districts in the country art doesn’t exist at all in the classroom. Imagine being an 5-18 year old growing up with no art/painting, drawing,woodshop or music. Art creates innovators and deep thinkers in our culture taking away “CREATIVITY” is the last thing we should be doing to our kids to our society to our future. The world needs innovation and having hands on art experiences is fundamentally important to learning, growing and learning about oneself. Exercising our own unique creativity is the lightning rod that inspires, engages and educates us all.
“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.” – Benjamin Franklin
Art Involves, Inspires and Stimulates the Education Process.
