Artists & Educators,
a.r.t. (artists. rallying. together.) was created as a result of conversations I continued to have with local artists who had NO idea what was happening in our public schools regarding the arts. Budget cuts continued to chop the arts over & over. There are local musicians, painters, poets, etc. who are concerned about our diminishing arts programs for Milwaukee's youth.
Through local events, including book talks & benefit concerts, not only is awareness raised to the importance of the arts, but these events bring local artists & teachers together.
The arts (dance, music, drama, and visual art) allow students to not only express themselves, but the arts invite them to form a deeper understanding of their academics & their world. In addition, a.r.t. informs local educators & artists about arts advocacy at the local, statewide, and national levels.
