How Important Is Arts And Architecture Education?

Art education teaches children to think three-dimensionally, to use their imaginations, and to connect to their communities, cultures, and place in the world.

During “The Essential Role of Arts and Architecture Education in K-12 Education,” a roundtable discussion organized by the New York Foundation for Architecture, participants from both the public and private sectors explained how art education teaches kids to think three-dimensionally, to use their imaginations, and to connect to their communities, cultures, and place in the world.
