Music and Visual arts programs are diminishing in our public schools every year. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, 89% of elementary schools offer art programs once a week or less. Of those, more than 50% of the curriculum was shared by art and music. Our kids need more than 30 minutes of art or music in a week if we expect them to develop the problem solving and mathematical skills founded in art & music studies. Sacramento Artists Council strives to Donations help fund grants that sustain or create art programs for Sacramento Public Schools. Every penny counts!
