Re:Help wth grant
- I found this article last summer. It was in the New York Times in July:Guggenheim Museum Announces Findings of Study Evaluating Impact of Arts Education on LiteracyResults suggest arts education increases fundamental literacy skills in elementary school students...The Guggenheim's program Learning Through Art was created by a museum trustee in 1970 when New York schools were cutting art and music programs. Since it began, it has involved more than 130,000 students in dozens of public schools. The museum dispatches artists who spend one day a week at schools over a 10 or 20 week period helping students and teachers learn about and make art.
