aafa | American Academy of Fine Arts
The arts are what make us most human, most complete as people. The arts cannot be learned through occasional or random exposure any more than math or science can. Study and participation in the fine arts is a key component in improving learning throughout all academic areas. Evidence of its effectiveness in reducing student dropout, raising student attendance, developing better team players, fostering a love for learning, improving greater student dignity, enhancing student creativity, and producing a more prepared citizen for the workplace for tomorrow can be found documented in studies held in many varied settings, from school campuses, to corporate America. The fine arts also provide learners with non-academic benefits such as promoting self-esteem, motivation, aesthetic awareness, cultural exposure, creativity, improved emotional expression, as well as social harmony and appreciation of diversity.
American Academy of Fine Arts had its beginning with the opening, in 2013, to promote the fine arts education for K-12 educators, students, and scholars.
