Imagine a world without colorful paintings, intriguing sculptures or sketches to ponder.

Imagine a world without the sound of music or dancers to enjoy the rhythm.

Sedona Red Rock News Managing Editor Trista Steers   MacVittieImagine a world without poetry or theater.

The first art forms date back thousands of years and were found on rock walls and in caves.

Sketches etched into stone tell the early stories of man giving us a tiny glimpse at what the world may have been like for ancient civilization.

As time and human intellect progressed, art transformed with it.

As science and math developed, art’s role shifted more to pleasure or leisure, yet it still played an important social and historical role in society.

Today, art education in public schools isn’t what it used to be. Tight budgets forced schools to cut back on classes considered extras, which art and music classes have become.

Studies show, however, art plays a vital role in a child’s education and cognitive development.

The problem is school districts don’t always have enough money to properly fund art education.

School administrators make tough decisions every day when it comes to where to spend money when it comes to education.

Luckily the children in Sedona have plenty of artists who understand the importance of what they do and appreciate how it relates to the general education system.

Programs through the Sedona Public Library, city of Sedona and various other youth art and dance programs help fill the void for local children.

The Artists in the Classroom series, organized by the city of Sedona’s Art Education Coordinator Nancy Robb Dunst, goes one step further bringing local artists into schools to supplement art education.

Thanks to the poets, painters, actors, dancers, potters and sculptors, Sedona’s children won’t be left behind when it comes to the arts.
