Riverdale students talk about the arts

Arts Tax: Your Tax Dollars At Work The Regional Arts & Culture Council created a series of videos to celebrate the arts in our schools and remind our communities about the benefits of the Arts Tax. Riverdale School District is one of six school districts that receives funding from the City of Portland's Arts Education & Access Fund (Arts Tax). We have even more reason to be thankful for the generous support of our community and the Riverdale School Foundation.
 
Here are two videos featuring Riverdale Grade School students discussing the benefits of their visual arts and music curriculum. Click on an image to view the video on YouTube.

"Art and music have affected my education because they help me become more focused with what I am learning in my subjects."

"Some things I’ve learned in music and art is that being creative doesn’t always mean creating new things. It can also mean thinking about new things and thinking out of the box. And it can be used in any subject, not just art and music."
