Why Art Matters: Arts In Education

Series 4 of LIFEWTR “Why Art Matters” shows three emerging artists whose lives were changed by arts education. This video focuses on educators, with a visit to a public school which is finding that arts education improves student performance in surprising ways. We go behind the scenes for candid interviews with staff and high schoolers to explore how arts education impacts students across the board – even those who won’t pursue an arts career.
