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.

Arts and culture and music bring out creative passion in children. Later on in life creativity will make a major difference in the way one approaches various challenges in every step of business as well as social endeavour. Crestivity makes a major difference in the thought process and offers vision to accomplish outstanding work. Teaches one how to appreciate talent and beauty.We need the culture and arts and music to continue to build not to diminish.

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 part of our humanity. it is a backbone part of our healing. our self-expression. our intelligence. it nourishes who we are as a society. it is crucial for our children. how could we NOT value the arts in school? why is this even a debate?

It's very important to develop both sides of your brain. Imagen the world without Pablo Picasso or Albert Einstien. The world deserves better and more interesting people. Art allows for creativity and.
new perspectives on every level. Let music be a stress relief valve for all those angry kids that sure.
need to let it all hungout. Even jocks love to dance every now and then. After all , some of the.
wealthiest people in the world are musicians , actors , painters etc.

In this increasingly stressful life we live what we need are more avenues for release and not less, and reducing the opportunities our children have to release the stresses that come with modern life such as limiting their ability to express themselves makes no sense at all!
