“Arts education not only enhances students' understanding of the world around them, but it also broadens their perspective on traditional academics. The arts give us the creativity to express ourselves, while challenging our intellect.”
--Dr. Terry Bergeson, State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Washington State, November 2001
ScienceDaily (Nov. 5, 2008) — A Harvard-based study has found that children who study a musical instrument for at least three years outperform children with no instrumental training—not only in tests of auditory discrimination and finger dexterity (skills honed by the study of a musical instrument), but also on tests measuring verbal ability and visual pattern completion (skills not normally associated with music).
“It is important to note that while studies show positive influences in other academic areas, music and the Fine Arts are an academic discipline that are, as the other academics, an independent way of learning and knowing.”
Currently Cheaha Creative Arts provides instruction within selected Anniston City Schools as well as after school programs involving ballet, piano, yoga, sewing, and the visual arts (drawing, painting, sculpting, etc.). It has been featured in articles in The Anniston Star and TV24. It is supported by tuition payments, grants, and corporate and individual donations. CCA is recognized as a 501(c)(3) organization by the Internal Revenue Service. All donations are tax deductible.
