CHARLESTON, SC (FOX24 NEWS NOW) —

Dr. James Yanney of Children’s Fine and Performing Arts Foundation hopes to bring art and music back into children’s lives. University studies have shown that the absence of music and art within public schools has affected the likelihood of students being successful in other subjects. Dr. Yanney explains that we should focus on our children, who are our future. He says, “When the child is put in the right environment and given the ability to fully develop their gifts, it allows them to be successful.”

To raise awareness, the Children’s Fine and Performing Arts Foundation is hosting a Play Ball for All event on Aug. 24 at Charleston RiverDogs.
