ArtSchools.com, a leading directory of top art schools, applauds actress Annette Bening for her efforts as an arts education advocate and promoting art in schools.
According to a January 20th article published by KPCC titled “Annette Bening to become face of arts education for California,” leading Hollywood actress Annette Bening recently signed up with the California Art Council to be the newest spokesperson for the organization’s charity fund, which promotes art education in schools. The article says the Art Council’s fund “raises money for arts education through public donations on state tax returns,” a law signed last September by the California governor.
While finite details about Bening’s involvement in the organization’s campaign have not been discussed, the article says the star will be appearing in advertisements and promotional assets. Bening will join the likes of Jack Black, Eli Broad and Macy Gray, who have helped the council in previous years.
Andrew Girard, a representative from ArtSchools.com, a directory of top art schools, says having the support of a well-known celebrity can help raise awareness for the importance of arts education. “I commend Bening for her efforts and passion to help schools reinstate their arts programs,” Girard says. “Arts education is extremely important and she’s doing a great service here. People take notice when a celebrity is actively endorsing an important cause. Her endorsement will raise awareness and hopefully educate school districts and teachers on the importance of having an arts education.”
