    > Arts education in schools takes many forms. Young people may play an
    > instrument in the orchestra, paint a mural, sing in the choir or act in
    > a play. Regardless of the activities they enjoy, children develop a
    > greater understanding of history, culture and the rich traditions found
    > in our communities and our society. Students also learn discipline,
    > focus and self-confidence and gain knowledge of how to express
    > themselves both in individual and group activities.

    ..beginning in August 2000, to encourage families, educators, civic and
    business leaders in their support of arts programs and activities in their
    communities....
