Why is art so important?

Some may think supporting the arts is frivolous when there are so many more important things in this world needing attention, but research shows that art has many unexpected benefits for the participants and for the society at large.

Participating in the arts nurtures cognitive, social and personal competencies by:

* INCREASE academic achievement
