WHY ART?

Creativity is the #1 skill 72% of business leaders look for in new employees*

And yet school budgets continue to cut the arts!

In a Harvard study on social mobility** across the U.S., Charlotte ranked dead last!  This means low-income youth in Charlotte have the odds stacked against them!

But odds can be overcome!  And, in every story of overcoming the odds, there are common qualities in the heroes...

 

The 3 C's!

  • CREATIVITY

  • ConfidencE

  • CRITICAL THINKING

Studies show The 3 C's develop naturally through engagement with the arts!
