In today’s education system Art is slowly becoming extinct. Kids are restricted learning only what is thought to improve test scores and the creative side of the brain is left unused. Right now many people around the country are pushing to bring Art back into our youth’s lives. We are here today to show why "Art matters."

In this documentary we will be following teaching Artist Vince Horiuchi in his Breakdance Classes throughout Sacramento, CA. Along the way we will be hearing the stories from Teachers, Parents, administration and most importantly the kids on how this experience has affected them. In the end the students will be performing at a Festival and at the County Fair, so we will be following them along this Journey to see how they have benefited from this experience.

The mission for “Art Matters” is to show why art is important & necessary in children's’ education. This will be done by showing how art helps children break personal boundaries, and the positive affect it has on their learning process. Accomplishing this will hopefully will shed a positive light on art programs, and gain new supporters for art programs in school curriculum.

For the "Art Matters Documentary" we are trying to raise a minimum of $10,000 but really need about $30,000 for all of our costs. You support is greatly appreciated. 

Risks and challenges

Once this project is funded some of my goals are to get this film to shown at Film Festivals, on Netflix and on Public Television in order to gain national exposure. Some of the obstacles that are currently laid out for me are deadlines, fees and of course marketing.
