We live in an age when image is everything, so it would seem everyone should recognize why the arts are critically important. But, in reality, many in positions of power today view the arts as an extracurricular activity when budgets are squeezed and programs must be cut.
Marmillion + Company has been fortunate to work with organizations and government agencies to design programs that help keep the arts alive. And we have worked tirelessly as a partner with many arts groups to advocate and raise awareness for what they (and we) believe is the critical link between arts education and student achievement. Our pivotal research with the Arts Education Partnership on the “imagine nation” continues to show strong evidence that the American public is demanding that schools act to once again ignite and develop the imagination of young people as the essential capacity for envisioning and attaining these competencies, skills, and values.
There is an "imagine nation" at the heart of this public understanding that realizes that building capacities of the imagination rests primarily with an education in and through the arts and that the arts are essential to invigorating the teaching of other fundamental school subjects.
