Why the arts matter to education:
The performing arts can make us feel—exhilarated, nostalgic, entertained, joyous. But they can also help us succeed, as students, professionals, and citizens of the world.
The arts help very young children learn critical skills—creativity, collaboration, math, language arts, imagination. The arts prepare young professionals to be innovative thinkers and creative problem-solvers—traits that today’s competitive business world values highly.
The arts help all of us understand and embrace cultural diversity as the language of an interconnected world community.
Wolf Trap Foundation dedicates a significant portion of its resources to education. It’s at the heart of our mission.
