ART’s Astounding Impact
When children and youth engage with art they gain confidence, self-awareness, and knowledge of the world around them.
Problem Solving • Collaboration • Empathy
Art experiences provide opportunities for children and youth to develop crucial social, emotional, and cognitive skills, including collaboration, imaginative problem solving, and many other abilities. Discover the power of art and IAS.
“The arts empower… give a voice to the voiceless… (and) help transform communities… the result can be a better child, a better town, a better nation and certainly a better world.”
