Why having art in communities matters:
Exposure to visual art and participation in creative activities creates positive brain changes.
Better brain function: Studies show that groups exposed to viewing or creating art experience more connectivity between parts of the brain.
Lower rates of depression: In a study, patients with depression or chronic pain who were offered an 8-week art course were 37% less likely to need ongoing medication.
Higher graduation rates: Youth in underserved communities are five times more likely to graduate high school when they have access to art classes.
Better test scores: High schoolers who take just four years of art classes score 150 points higher on the SAT.
