Monday Musings ~ Good for the Soul and the Mind

Did you have your "serving" of art this week?  According to a recent study by Stanford University professor Shirley Brice Heath, young people who participate in the arts at least 3 hours, 3 days/week for 1 year are 4 times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement and 3 times more likely to be elected to class office within their schools.  Everyone need to appreciate the importance of the Arts and advocate that Art programs in our public schools not be cut!
