Unlock Middle School with the Arts

“Someday I will be famous, but for now I am stuck in middle school.” Jeff Kinney, author of Diary of a Wimpy Kid series Studies show that middle school students participating in arts education programs not only develop creative problem solving skills, but also have fewer discipline problems, better attendance, and score higher on standardized tests than their peers who do not have access to such programs. This education session will highlight three arts programs for middle school students in our community. Speakers: Debbie Bell, Executive Director, South Carolina Children’s Theatre; Alan Ethridge, Executive Director, Metropolitan Arts Council; Larisa Gelman, VP of Community Impact, Peace Center Representative.
