In a new article from Model D, Henry Ford Academy: School for Creative Studies 12th grade art instructor Anita Bates talks about the benefits of having a tuition-free 6-12 visual arts school situated in Detroit's creative hub. “This whole adventure has dispelled myths about what one can do with an art degree,” says Bates. “It's typical to imagine an artist as a starving artist, but we expose students to the idea that there's so much you can do with that ball of creativity that they have -- there's so much they can do in this world.”
