Why It's Important
Education in the arts is an integral part of the development of each human being. Those who have studied learning processes throughout the ages, beginning with Plato, have emphasized the importance of the arts in the education process. Arts education refers to education in the disciplines of music, dance, theatre, and visual arts. Study in the arts is integral to our society. They are a part of the cultural heritage of every American. The arts are what make us most human, most complete as people. Sufficient data exists to overwhelmingly support the belief that study and participation in the fine arts is a key component in improving learning throughout all academic areas.
What We're Doing
What Still Needs Done
Kane Education Foundation is working closely with all Kane County schools to evaluate the needs for creating opportunities for students from elementary to high school age to participate in different fine arts activities.
If you have a strong interest in helping the Fine Arts Programs of the Kane Education Foundation, please contact Calli Kelly.
