music and art have a profound effect on the development of our brains, our thought structures and our emotional responses, all enhanced by exposure to the creative arts. these are the very things that give joy and meaning to our lives, and our lives should be filled with joy and meaning.

The arts are essential for children to explore and expand their minds. They bring joy to so many and allow some children to excel in environment which can sometimes be stifling. Even if children don't grow up to be an artist or a musician or an actor the arts contribute to helping them to be a fully rounded person with appreciation for more than just money and even contributes to practical aspects of life and work like team work and creative thinking.

The arts are important, stop and think about it all those pretty posts, all those music posts, hmmmm! No more, all gone.

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!

If we want thriving happy creative people and communities we need the vibrancy of arts easily accessible by all.
