This ensures we are diligently laying the foundation for inclusive practices to be incorporated into our arts-integrated curriculum and increasing the opportunities for people of all abilities to participate in an artistically-excellent program. Underserved communities especially those of color experience obstacles that prohibit academic excellence, success, growth, and development in areas of education, mental health, and healing. Research has demonstrated children who are exposed to art experience significant growth in linguistics, self-confidence, have higher retention rates due to artistic purist, which are critical for students competing in a global economy.

Art is an excellent form of learning to assist in battling such mental health diagnoses. However, there is little access to art education due to budget cuts in public schools, limited community programs, and communities being under-resourced particularly black and brown communities. In most cases, the "successful" programs are geared toward a poverty mindset elevating access to Art education thus hindering creativity.
