DoSomething.org, the country's largest non-profit for young people and social change, recently listed the top seven reasons why art is important and we couldn’t agree more!

1. Art is a language that all people speak that cuts across racial, cultural, social, educational and economic barriers and enhance cultural appreciation and awareness.
2. Art provides opportunities for self-expression, bringing the inner world into the outer world of concrete reality.
3. Art develops both independence and collaboration.
4. Art makes it possible to use personal strengths in meaningful ways and to bridge into understanding difficult abstractions through these strengths.
5. Art improves academic achievement -- enhancing test scores, attitudes, social skills, critical and creative thinking.
6. Art exercises and develops higher order thinking skills including analysis, synthesis, evaluation and "problem-finding."
7. And most important of all, art provides the means for every student to learn.
