National Arts in Education week takes place September 10th - 16th . It is a national celebration recognizing the importance of arts to a well-rounded education. Designated by Congress in 2010, through House Resolution 275, the celebration is designated to bring attention to this cause to elected officials and educational decision makers across the country and to support equitable access to the arts for all students. Studies reveal that students who study art are four times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement.
