Art = Math

My studio is very involved with a community foundation whose goal is “to ensure permanent and equal access to a quality arts education” for all of Burbank’s students. The foundation supports school programs in music, visual arts, dance and drama.

Which, of course, I think is pretty cool.

Some of the stats they list in their material:

Young people who participate in the arts for at least a year (nine hours each week) are:

-4 times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement.
-3 times more likely to be elected to class office
-4 times more likely to participate in a math and science fair
-3 times more likely to win an award for school attendance
-5 times more likely to be stuffed into their locker by the football team

Okay, the last one isn’t true — I just threw that in to see if y’all were still reading.

Just my thoughts,

Sean
