C'est une part essentielle de l'Être!

If I hadn't had arts in high school my life would have been much harder, artistic expression in any form is a great way to briefly lose yourself from the world and focus on something positive.

How else will children develop their imaginations, without art?

I started playing drums in 1883 and began Live Sound activities in 1987. Oer the years I have had many jobs and interests, the only ones that have stayed with me a re music and sound.

'The Arts' is such a broad sector of the community and is still overlooked. We work hard, we provide vital services, we are highly skilled and competent, we are helpful and friendly by nature, we are keen to always learn and to pass on our knowledge - working in 'The Arts' IS having a real job.
Career options should be explored and by taking 'The Arts' out of public school system, the choices are being reduced.
Without 'The Arts' there is no entertainment...

Because it's the key to imagination and creative processes and alternatives.

It's fundamental.
It's Enriching. Enlivening. Challenging. Provocative. We are all creative, why on earth would we choose to deny our children the potential of learning through the creative process? It's madness.

Les arts dans le programme éducatif tels la musique, la danse, le théâtre, les arts visuels sont des matières fondamentales et nécessaires au développement de l'enfant tout comme les sciences, les mathématiques, et la technologie. Peu importe le pays, peu importe la richesse, c'est nécessaire pour le développement de l'enfant; des scientifiques l'ont déjà affirmé!

Through Art, you learn to coordinate mind spirit and body; from head to toe. Very important, since technology can keep us from doing so. We must keep Art in our everyday Life.

We are losing youth with the ability to say why. We need the kids who think outside the box. The ones who say it is ok to colour outside the lines. Not all children see flowers as red, and green. They see purple and yellow, and tangerine and even black. If they are not taught to think creativly thru art ,, where will the creative accountants come from, or the doctors and nurses who are willing to take a chance and in doing so find a cure , not just a pill but a cure.

We are losing youth with the ability to say why. We need the kids who think outside the box. The ones who say it is ok to colour outside the lines. Not all children see flowers as red, and green. They see purple and yellow, and tangerine and even black. If they are not taught to think creativly thru art ,, where will the creative accountants come from, or the doctors and nurses who are willing to take a chance and in doing so find a cure , not just a pill but a cure. The arts teach us to challange ourselves in so many ways. And yes the arts create and increase passion the single most important ingredient in the sciences and in discovery. A child should never be deprived of expressing themselves through art, culture and creative thinking.
