American Bronze Foundry is a proud advocate of keeping art programs in public schools.
From cave drawings to urban graffiti, humans have expressed themselves through imagery. Artistic endeavors are the first attempts at human communication outside of speech.
Art programs do far more than teaching children how to draw, paint, or play an instrument. Art programs teach students the underlying skills for such undertakings as sewing, map making, mathematical comprehension, creative writing, and more. Art programs aid students in understanding human anatomy, architecture, and social dynamics. These art programs also help develop crucial cognitive skills such as spatial relevance, perspective, and is also an outlet for expression of emotion, feelings about themselves and others. Cultural identification and geographical placement are more easily understood through art, especially at young ages.
The reason that practicing of artistic endeavors makes students smarter is not because they specifically learn to draw a house or sculpt a pot. The reason is that art teaches humans how to think and draw relations between themselves and the world around them.
We would like to encourage parents, teachers, and students to schedule a tour of our Art Foundry to see first hand, the process of creating a bronze statue. We also encourage all to speak up about the importance of art in schools and ask school administrators, county commissioners, and state and federal legislatives to allow for art program budgets in public schools.
