Did you know…

91 percent of Americans believe that the arts are vital to providing a well-rounded education, and young people who study the arts consistently demonstrate higher levels of empathy, social tolerance and civic engagement.

Low-income students who are highly engaged in the arts are twice as likely to graduate college as their peers with no arts education.

Early science learning is important for all students, but especially for underrepresented students who are less likely to be exposed to science through their  families and communities.

Only 36 percent of high school graduates are prepared to pursue a college-level science course, and only 16 percent of high school seniors are keen on pursuing STEM careers.

Want to support our organization?

We need your support to keep making great educational materials for young people, parents, and teachers.

How can you help?

Everyone is creative in their own way, and everyone benefits from a well-rounded education. There are many ways you can help build your own creative community and share your gifts and knowledge with others:
