Arts in Education

Encouraging Students to Engage in The Arts

Charlotte Arts advocates for the preservation of arts education in public schools by maintaining an open dialogue with the Charlotte County School Board and state representatives.

Annually, Charlotte Arts sponsors awards for the annual High School Art Show, held at the Visual Arts Center in Punta Gorda. Awards are presented to student artists from Charlotte High School, Port Charlotte High School, and Lemon Bay High School.

“When schools include art programs in the curriculum, children do better with math.”
