“The arts are indicators of emotional intelligence, but they also produce emotional intelligence. They help us grow and adapt. …. The humanities help us attune to each other as individuals and as a culture.” Dr. Stuart Brown. We are anxious to get back to learning in person with our students and are looking forward to the time when our schools are able to open safely. The transition to online learning has gone well but we all know it is just not the same as in person learning. We need the arts more than ever and the benefits of the expressive arts will be critically important as we transition back to more in person activities. We are excited to rebuild community & connection among our students as we recover from this time of isolation and separation.
