Why is Arts Education important at GSHS?
- It has been proven that early exposure to visual art, music, or drama promotes activity in the brain.
- Art helps students understand other subjects much more clearly—from math and science, to language arts and geography.
- Art nurtures inventiveness as it engages students in a process that aids in the development of self-esteem, self-discipline, cooperation, and self-motivation.
- Participating in art activities helps students to gain the tools necessary for understanding human experience, adapting to and respecting others’ ways of working and thinking, developing creative problem-solving skills, and communicating thoughts and ideas in a variety of ways.
