Studio D started this petition to Cannon County School Board Memebers and

 All of our schools provide art to Pre-K through 8th grade students. Not only does art provide an outlet for creative individuality it helps learners to develop  problem-solving skills.  Art is an effective  discipline to manage behaviors, process feelings, reduce stress and anxiety, and increase self-esteem.For some it gives them a place to belong and be successful.All of which is needed,especially during this time of high stress and mental uncertainty. Studies show that creating art stimulates the release of dopamine. This chemical is released when we do something pleasurable, and it basically makes us feel happier. This is evident by the increase of people  buying art supplies and being creative during this time of instability.  Art makes people optimistic about their future.Many of our children's only art experience has been and will be in the classroom. Art is a constant and stable fixture in their life. Do not allow this support to be taken from them. Do not let this be their future. Losing the arts in our school will be devastating to them. Our children do not have a choice, but you are their voice! They need us now more than ever.  We are a rural county that has already experienced the loss of music in our school system, please take a stand to stop art from being next!
