Eliza: Sounds like you are in a great place with TONS of potential. There
is a huge resource book, too scientific for me, about writing and drawing and
how one helps the other. If you are interested, I will dig it out of my
cellar. The Getty publications have so many articles in support of art ed.
especially since it's one part of the curriculum that promotes healthy risk
taking, decision making, visual thinking and planning, and problem solving.
It also provides an almost sure-fire way of achieving success for any student
in the school if you plan your lessons for certain students you hope to boost
up. It also provides opportunity for community work (murals, beautification
of school grounds in many ways -- the walls of the school, full of art,
really promote the school to any visitors or prospective students -- art is
PR. If you have permanent art, that you frame each year, it tells the
students that you value art and it helps them strive to be better presenters
of all of their school work.

Sorry I'm rambling -- I'm tired, but the arts should be the FOCUS of a
charter school.
