Article: The Art of Saving Water

California Arts Council Director Craig Watson reflects on our recent partnership with the California Department of Water Resources:
"While the actions of adults on water conservation will determine our fate, making kids aware of water and the drought is important too.
At the California Arts Council, we noticed that California's 4th and 5th grade students must meet science, history, and social science standards that require water education. Fourth grade students trace the evolution of California's water system into a network of dams, aqueducts, and reservoirs, while 5th graders are taught the human impact on earth systems such as water. And we know from research and experience that integrating arts into subjects like science and math can engage students and increase achievement. So why not combine art and science studies in a fun and creative project?"
