Why should you have to be in a certain type of school to learn the arts? Elitism is rife, we need to let the arts be available to every child. Creative children are happy children!
I certainly agree with Nerrilyn's comment, couldn't have said it better.
Art is youths tool for expression.
Feeding creativity is feeding the soul of humanity - there is nothing more important!
In my opinion - nothing is more important. Creativity is essential to all of us in some way. It has solutions to future problems.
The Arts must stay in all schools, it adds value to all our lives.
Art is importnt to expres yor emotion.
Creativity is the backbone of invention. It is more than the sum of its parts.
Who can imagine living in a world without creativity and creative human beings? It would be a sad, sad place! The arts, in all its forms, is imperative in every child's education! There is a necessity for each child to express his or her feelings through art. The arts should be a part of every child's education, from pre-school to high school. The arts are, as so many have already said, The Heart of Education!
The Arts enrich our lives and deepen our ability to express our emotions and understand the complexity of the human condition. They are the heart of education. Would you take the heart out of anything? I would not.
