Networks - Arts


The Arts Network believes artistic expression is a basic and necessary function of healthy and productive individuals, and that the health and productivity of a society is reflective of the degree of artistic expression among its citizens. 

The Arts Network is committed to initiating, developing, and implementing strategies and resources that will support interest and abilities in the Visual and Performing Arts. Specifically, the Network will:

  • Promote the recognition and acceptance of the Arts as an essential area of giftedness;
  • Encourage research in the area of the artistically gifted and talented;
  • Provide practical strategies and resources to foster artistic expression;
  • Increase awareness of artistic expression, aesthetic perception, aesthetic valuing, and aesthetic appreciation.
