In today’s episode, I’m speaking with Alicia Fuss, Director of Arts Education at the Tennessee Arts Commission, as we discuss the importance of art education in schools. Throughout the episode, Alicia provides information on multiple programs that school districts can utilize when encouraging students to be involved in the arts. Alicia speaks to the benefits of participation in these programs and provides research that shows students who are involved in the arts are four times more likely recognized for academic achievement.
