At Visual Arts Nova Scotia and PAINTS we believe in the importance of art in our lives, the life of our communities, and especially in our schools. The following links will connect you to a wealth of resources that illuminate and, in some cases, quantify the wonderful positive outcomes of including art in our communities and schools.

They will be useful to help you gain information and insight and, when it’s needed, to help you lobby to have art in your school or community:
