The Work of Art
Formcode begins its creative process with conceptual thought and ends with a visionary solution. Not every individual has the talent to work in a creative field but everyone should be given the opportunity to determine whether their calling lies in the arts. But, with the budget cuts plaguing education today we are seeing art programs cut from schools across the country.
What does this mean for our country’s creative future? Art education has been proven to help with students’ brain activity, can help with understanding other academic subjects like math and science, nurture innovation, and aid in the development of self-esteem, communication, problem-solving and critical thinking skills. So if this opportunity is taken away from our students, the results could be disastrous for the future of our country.
Organizations like The Work of Art have been established to help to combat these serious issues. A nonprofit, 501(c)3, founded to address the widespread issue of decreased funding for the arts in education, The Work of Art identifies and distributes grant money to deserving educators for the purpose of reintegrating art education into their classroom curriculum.
The Work of Art is supporting the next generation of creative talent. By introducing art into the classroom, we at Formcode look forward to seeing this talent engage in our field at an earlier age. It is our hope that these students will propel creative outlets forward through their unique points of view, inspiration, and innovation.
Join in our support of this great cause. The Work of Art will host its 2nd annual fundraiser on May 16, 2013. Hosted at Scavolini in Birmingham from 6 pm to 9 pm, enjoy wine and light hors d’oeuvres by Opus One Catering, a silent auction, and meet the teachers that are currently implementing The Work of Art’s grants.
