A message to perents
“The arts are, above all, the special language of children, who, even before they learn to speak, respond intuitively to dance,music, and color,” Dr. Ernest Boyer, former U.S. Commissioner of Education and president of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching once stated.
The magic of finding a new way of communicating, a new way of envisioning the world, is one of the most exciting discoveries that children make. Children need encouragement and guidance, though, in making these discoveries. The National Endowment for the Arts created this publication, Imagine!, to offer parents practical ways to introduce their children to the arts.
