I think that many of our schools are downplaying the importance of art in our education systems. I think everyone would agree that math, English, science, and all other basic programs are very important subjects to teach our young people. I want our students to excel in these subjects too. However, I would like to see art classes that would allow our students to use their minds to create art without having to use math, English, science, etc. I believe this would encourage today's youth to "think out side the box" to solve the problems of tomorrow.
