But I’d like to take you behind the scenes — and let you know why we’re so passionate about creating Art Fest Fort Myers. Supporting the arts defines the kind of community in which we wish to live and raise our children. • Art improves our quality of life, transforming and personalizing the places where we live and work.
• Artists bring creative thinking to community challenges and solutions. That’s why we’re devoted to making sure every child has a chance to enjoy art as part of a complete education.
• Arts organization leaders act as catalysts for learning, discovery, and achievement. What’s more, a study by Americans for the Arts found that young people who participate in the arts are: • Four times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement • Three times more likely to be elected to class office within their schools • Four times more likely to participate in a math or science fair • Three times more likely to be awarded for school attendance • Twice as likely to read for pleasure Throughout the years Art Fest Fort Myers has supported art education year-round in countless ways, reaching more than 50,000 students in Lee County.
• Art encourages people to ask questions and even begin conversations with total strangers, whom they may not otherwise meet. Art Under 20 (the high school exhibit & competition) and Chalk Block (the high school street painting competition) are core aspects of art education at the art festival.
