ART EDUCATION IS IMPONTENT TO MOULDING THE NEXT GEN.
Creative Arts is such an important part of life and should be available to all through our education system so as those who are inspired by it can continue to inspire through the generations to come....
Keep funding schools, I send my daughter to TAFE for performing arts cert III for two years costs a few thousand dollars and luckily her school is government funded there fore I pay a lot less so she can follow her dream.
Without imagination and creativity there would be nothing. The World, a Human construct, was created via imagination and creativity, the Arts, from the ancient cave dwellers to modern man. Children are like sponges and it's important for them to learn the Arts so that they can create a brighter future.
Many kids who can't express themselves through traditional schooling subjects often shine in the arts.. all school children should be afforded a creative opportunity.
It it important for childrens growth and development to have lots of opportunities to explore their creativity and use their skills. My favourite subject at school.
Art as in music is most a important outlet for expression and creativity, take this away from children's schooling and you are taking away their right to learn, particularly in areas of low income where fees for art classes could be an impossibility. Keep art in schools.
Even the "driest" economists recognize the need for creative minds to flourish. We are already in the midst of a media explosion- we should be putting MORE money into the Arts. If we do not; we will fall behind and have less fun!
I'm amazed that they are even considering taking arts out of school. I think it's important.
I am an aritist , it is a way of adding to my income to teach kids in schools. Kids are great leqarners and creaters I love to see what they come up with.
