We all discovered different ways to cope during the pandemic the past year. For many kids, discovering the joy of drawing, sketching, and painting was a healthy coping mechanism.

Unfortunately, schools in under-resourced communities have had to cut back or eliminate their arts programs entirely. In response, Art in Action is doubling its efforts to ensure that all kids have access to art as a tool for expression and creativity. They believe art is fundamental for childhood learning and development — it’s a right that all children deserve.

Researchers have found that engagement in the arts offers many benefits for children:

• Lower anxiety and stress
• Improved self-esteem and critical thinking aptitude
• Improved focus
• Reduced aggressive behavior
• Enhanced social-emotional skills development

Art in Action provides nationally recognized art education curricula to approximately 80,000 K-8 students nationwide. Whether students are learning about art from different cultures or experiencing new art media, they are given a safe space to flourish and find expression for their authentic voices.

Giving the gift of art can positively impact a child’s life into adulthood. Spark a child’s creativity by donating to Art in Action in Fall Add-Ons during the dates below or at artinaction.org.
