Arts Education for all Oklahomans
Statement of Belief
We, the Oklahoma Alliance for Arts Education, believe that the study of the arts is essential to the basic education of all students.
Learning in the arts encourages the development of cognitive and creative abilities that help students achieve academically and promotes the development of skills necessary for a lifetime of learning including: self-discipline, creative problem solving, collaboration, teamwork, and critical thinking.
An education in the arts promotes the development of individuals to be motivated, discerning, knowledgeable, and involved members of their communities.
