My advice for President Obama:
“I would advise him to support more public/private partnerships in the arts as a way to build our youth, as well as strengthen our communities and provide jobs. We have to come up with creative solutions to help cities and schools with a lack of funding to get the private sector involved in these solutions. Cites like Pasadena, CA have implemented these programs as a way to keep arts education in the school curriculum when money was tight or nonexistent. Through their innovative program called ‘My Masterpieces: Discovering Art in My Community,’ they partner with local art institutions and students take field trips in the community specifically co-designed with the K-6 visual art curriculum.”
