Audience Feedback: How the Arts Impacts Lives

This article is a summary of responses that I received from you, my viewers. I appreciate all of the responses I received from everyone; there was a lot of great feedback.

From the Facebook poll: Passion for The Arts, I received 32 responses in total. The question was, “When you had the arts in school as a child, do you think it had a positive effect on you while growing up? (The Arts: music, visual art, dance, or drama).”

There were 28 people that chose the response, “Yes, the arts had a positive effect on me.” Three people chose the response, “No, the arts had a negative effect on me.” One person chose the response, “I’m not sure.”

A total of 88 percent said, “Yes,” nine percent said, “No,” and three percent said, “I’m not sure.”

 For gender comparison of the Facebook poll, 88 percent of my audience was female and 13 percent were male.

Honestly, for my blog survey: How the Arts Impacts Lives, I did not receive as many responses as I would have liked. However, the responses I did receive were still great; I am grateful for the participation.

In summary, the majority of my viewers:

  • Felt that the arts had impacted them positively as a child
  • Experienced direct skills from the arts such as heighted creativity and/or confidence
  • Had dance, music, or visual arts as a child growing up in school.
  • Felt that their children were positively effected by the arts in school
  • Felt that school Funding budget cuts are unfair and should be corrected

Lastly, I interviewed Scott Evans, the Fine Arts Coordinator for the Orange County school district. I enjoyed speaking with him; he had a lot of great information to share. For feedback, I received a few likes on Facebook, which was great.
