Create a physical territory extension for Sharpie
How can Sharpie help future creatives uncap their potential when their artistic freedom is being taken away in school
Create a after school space to help uncap creative stories for the underrepresented youths in America
Currently in America, art programs are under attack
Through the NCES education website more and more states are no longer accepting art as core subject in their education system
Lack of opportunities for self-expression cause students to make poor decisions and to have behavior problems
low-income eighth-graders who had lots of exposure to the arts were more likely than their peers with less exposure to earn higher grades and attend college
A 2012 study by the United States’ National Endowment for the Arts
ONLY 21% of Urban students who are exposed to less arts anticipate themselves having professional careers by age 30
roughly 50% for urban students with high art exposure
WHO DOES THIS IMPACT
Through research found in psychology and adolescent behavioral journals, mid adolescent age for youths tend to be most vulnerable
