Kids need art, and we all know that art programs are underfunded. This article on the importance of art in child development from PBS.org cites that, “art education strengthens problem-solving and critical-thinking skills. The experience of making decisions and choices in the course of creating art carries over into other parts of life.”
And according to a report by the Center for Arts Education in NYC, “in schools with the lowest graduation rates, where arts could have had the greatest impact – students have the least opportunity to participate in arts learning.”
Let’s change that – and have some fun!
Wythe Hotel has partnered with Public – Supply, who makes responsibly-sourced notebooks and 100% of proceeds from the event will support DonorsChoose.org and teachers that encourage creativity in the classroom.
