My H.S. Art Dept. has been given support both financial and physical (help in
shows and guests, etc.) by the home and school club because of our shows and
the growing awareness of our dept. to the mass parent community.
We have 5 full time teachers in a dept. that has 25 sections. I am extremely
grateful to the support of my principal and the Home and School Club for
their support. It hurts me to read how some of you can't get support and are
working on an uphill battle against their lack of support and awareness of
the importance of the arts. All I know is, we put up the student work and
the public likes it, kids like it and the district likes the attention of the
I think that parents are the strongest thing that a district administration
looks to for a guide to their success. Get the parents of students involved
in showcasing your school's shows and exhibits and then you might see a
change in their opinion of the arts.
