SmartARTS continually seeks funding because there are always new teachers entering the district and students to inspire. Each year SmartARTS receives requests from new teachers and schools to attend training and to implement this effective methodology. As funding for the arts in public schools continues to dwindle, it is imperative that SmartARTS continues to enhance academic achievement, while introducing underserved students to artistic expression. Excellent arts integration programming is dependent upon support from the Greenville community.
SmartARTS is a long-term investment; it is a break-the-cycle investment. Experiencing the arts in curriculum is powerful, especially for underserved students and is an important key to their educational success. SmartARTS believes that all students need a place in education where they can succeed and where the learning is personal and memorable. SmartARTS achieves these goals.
