What is so important about Art Education?


Challenge: art class is underestimated as a method of brain training and is underfunded in area public schools. Cash-strapped schools fight to keep their art programs alive. In our rural Haywood (western NC) County school system, some teaching positions are there but the art supply funds are not. Art teachers depend on QuickDraw’s annual art fundraiser to purchase the items on the art teachers’ supply lists.
