Artistic endeavor bridges languages and culture and lets us recognize we are more alike than different. Thus they are at the very heart of civilization.

Creativity is a terrible thing to waste, and I believe that all of us have it in us somewhere. I just recently began painting and drawing. I have a long way to go to be as good as I would like to be, but given the opportunity in school, I would have been doing it all along. Art is a great release for depression and anxiety. Art of any kind.
It is as great tool for the mind!

Creative intelligence is as important as any other, and moreso for those whose main strengths are in that area.

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.

'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...
