Education must include a mastery of one's language (a second language is a huge advantage!), a sense of one's place in time (History) & place (Geography) & the various attempts to understand Humanity's Story (Religions & Ideologies) & the various ways that Humanity has recorded, celebrated & catalogued our collective experience of existence, of LIFE! Without Culture, without Art, it is merely a collection of lists!
Arts is not an optional extra.It is core.
The arts that I participated in when I was in school has given me a career, an appreciation for art design, and helped me raise thoughtful and enthusiastic young people.
Because children need to be exposed to many options in life so they can make decisions about their path towards their future. Even if they never turn towards the arts for a career or interest they should be exposed to the beauty out there in the many forms of the arts. A well rounded mind helps to insure more informed life choices.
Supported your cause cuz right thing to do
Art is one way to express yourself with words sometimes .... Because words sometimes hard to find ... Or say ...
Without words I mean ... Daaaa
Having The Arts available to children in public schools allows so many kids to shine....
Absolutely , I'll second that !
The Arts are the lifeblood of a healthy society - and the hearts' expression.
Without the arts, life is meaningless. Let us not let them snuff it out of our lives and the lives of our children.
!>every child is an artist<!>maintain your inner child<!
If we want thriving happy creative people and communities we need the vibrancy of arts easily accessible by all.
I wish a broad education in a variety of arts had been available in my school days. Art, then, was only drawing, which was not my strong point. Now - had there been as much mentoring in all forms of writing, poetry and music - that would have been heaven.
