Arts in Education in Davie County

The arts are valuable in and of themselves, but there is ample research to support another benefit of the arts--they enhance academic performance. By requiring children to use all of their senses in the creation and appreciation of art, we are giving them the chance to think outside the box and express themselves in new and exciting ways. Davie County has a long history of supporting Arts in Education programs in our schools. Arts make strong accents on the learning of core subjects such as language, mathematics, science and world studies.

Through arts programs sponsored by the Davie County Arts Council and funded by caring individuals and businesses in our community, we strive to engage the children in a variety of ways including participation and study of arts in different cultures.
