The Arts Are at the Heart of Lifelong Learning

 


Arts Education Improves Performance

Arts education improves performance in all academic areas, on the sports field, and in the boardroom. A lifelong appreciation for the arts is one of the values that arts education imparts to students. As young people graduate from Fauquier, Liberty and Kettle Run high schools, they should expect their community to continue to support their desire to see and participate in performances – and to pass these values to their own children. As a community, our support of a performing arts center recognizes the importance of the lifelong significance of the arts and the value system

The Arts Attracts and Keeps Talent

Arts and cultural facilities can make the difference in attracting and keeping leading-edge talent. The arts are an economic engine. The average audience member will visit surrounding restaurants and stores. Economic impact studies demonstrate that cultural facilities can help revitalize town centers and catalyze investment.
