Arts education not only enhances students' understanding of the world around them, but it also broadens their perspective on traditional academics. The arts give us the creativity to express ourselves, while challenging our intellect. The arts integrate life and learning for all students and are integral in the development of the whole person. --Dr. Terry Bergeson, former State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Washington State, November 2001
