Save Arts Education!

Due to ongoing state and local budget cuts, the Arts are often the first thing to go.  However, many people fail to understand the importance of the Arts.  Arts education can increase awareness of self and others.  It can improve clarity and creativity in communication of verbal and nonverbal ideas.  It can also deepen understanding of human behavior, motivation, diversity, culture, and history.  YOU can help.  Write, email, or call our local leaders and tell them that we need steady and consistent funding for education, including Arts education.  (LAUSD Superintendent Ramon Cortines - 213-241-7000 - Superintendent_RamonCortines@LAUSD.NET, LAUSD School Board -, City Council Member -, County Supervisor -
