We are joined by the Executive Director of Arts for Learning San Diego, Tara Graviss, who shared how her organization helps students, families and communities “imagine, create, and thrive through the arts.” For many students, the arts are therapeutic and effective in student retention and success in school. Arts for Learning San Diego is making a difference and is helping to educate parents and others about the role that arts plays in youth development.
In the second half of the hour, we feature Stacey Roberts, founder of “Stacey Roberts Entertains Kids”. For over 30 years, Stacey has written, recorded, and performed songs that encourage children to read, be friends, learn, explore, and use their imaginations. Stacey also played a song for our listeners and did a live performance of his “Reading Rap”.1 Arts for Learning San Diego, with Tara Graviss
