"There is no language barrier in art," Monica Hayslip tells the Dallas Morning News.

Hayslip is the director of the Visual and Performing Arts department at Dallas ISD, the largest school district in Texas, and she's just been given the Texas Art Education Association's District of Distinction Award for the third year in a row.

"This distinction honors school districts who are leading the way in the visual arts as well as exemplifying a well-rounded education that advocates and integrates visual arts curriculum to inspire creativity and build social-emotional learning," TAEA's chair says in a press release.

The TAEA looked at more than 1, 200 school districts across the state, and only 68 of them met the high standard for excellence in the visual arts.

"With approximately 285 art teachers on 220 campuses, the visual arts are an important part of the district's offerings for all students," Hayslip tells the Morning News.

The visual arts "is a universal language that uses symbols, shapes, forms, lines, and colors for student expression, innovation, and exploration," Hayslip says.

"With our diverse population, art is extremely popular and provides a tool for all students to communicate."
