Announcing the 2012-2013 K12 Art Competition
It's time for the 2012–2013 K¹² Art Competition
Did you know that according to Edutopia.org, "years of research have shown that arts education is closely linked to almost everything that we as a nation say we want for our children and demand from our schools: academic achievement, social and emotional development, civic engagement, and equitable opportunity. Involvement in the arts is associated with gains in math, reading, cognitive ability, critical thinking, and verbal skill. Arts learning can also improve motivation, concentration, confidence, and teamwork."?
Giving students a fun way to explore their creative side and an opportunity to be recognized for their talents is the goal of our annual Art Competition, a K12 program created to encourage creativity through the arts.
