Arts education is the key to success for California’s students.

Students who learn arts at school score higher on tests, have better attendance records, significantly lower dropout rates, and are more than twice as likely to graduate from college.

Creativity is cited as the No. 1 desired skill in today’s job market, according to a 2010 IBM survey. Yet less than half of California’s students have access to art at their schools. 

And those who stand to benefit the most—like low-income students and English-language learners—are the least likely to be given the opportunity. We can—and we should—do better.

This tax season, you can help keep arts in schools by making a tax-deductible donation of $1 or more to the Keep Arts in Schools Fund on your state return. One hundred percent of your contribution will go to support arts education programming supported by the California Arts Council.

Do your part for tomorrow’s innovators who need arts education today. Visit www.keepartsinschoolsfund.org to learn how.
