Children First: All About The Arts

The arts can enhance a child's life! ABC30 will air its new Children First program, All About The Arts, on Sunday, December 12, 2021 at 6:30 p.m. Action News anchors Landon Burke and Vanessa Vasconcelos host the special focusing on arts in our community. Viewers can also stream live on ABC30's Connected TV apps on Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Apple TV, and Roku.

According to Arts Education Partnership, creativity is one of the top five skills employers are seeking in a job candidate. ABC30 takes an in-depth look at how the arts can improve a child's social-emotional well-being.

Stories include:

From first grade through high school, kids are in the spotlight!
The seniors are part of a four-year film program offered at El Diamante High School in Visalia.
It's been said that music heals wounds medicine cannot, but a local hospital has found a way to combine the two.

Sharing the gift of music! After COVID-19 silenced school marching bands, they are excited to be back in person.
