In this article, the writer discusses that since funding for school programs in the US has been so drastically reduced, art outreach programs have become absolute necessities for many communities. The writer points out that these programs also introduce not only children to art, but adults are benefiting from these programs as well. The writer explains that exposure to art at any age can bring about a transformation in an individual, giving them a window into a different world and perhaps a new window into themselves they may have never seen before. The writer concludes that outreach programs have the ability to touch entire communities and should be supported and encouraged as much as possible for their positive and long-term effect.
