Not Arts for Arts Sake…Arts Corps Video

Hey, we’re not trying to reinvent the wheel…just how we talk about it. “Arts for arts sake” (because it feels so important) doesn’t cut it in these tough times (of no $ for schools). “Music for reading and math sake” (cuz we know music students perform better in math and reading SATs) doesn’t tell me why we shouldn’t just do more reading and math in schools (the NCLB approach). But music and the arts to create students who perform better in school and life because they’ve learned how to imagine possibilities & take risks, how to have discipline & persist, how to work on a team & integrate feedback, how to reflect & think critically…now we’re on to something. Check out how our friends at Arts Corps in Seattle break it down beautifully in this video:—–
