How often does your child go to art class at school? Over at my daughter’s elementary school, she only goes to art once a week. That’s it. Creativity is a very important skill for kids and making art (or music or creative play) helps them develop that skill. With continuous budget cuts to school systems nationwide, it’s even more important that parents and the community help support our children’s art teachers.
