TESTIMONIALS
Art in schools is vital. It helps kids figure out that not every problem needs to get solved by following A+B+C because sometimes you can swing past X and through O to arrive at a different (yet valid) conclusion. Kids need the SPIRIT in art, they need to learn the visual voice that can create stories of beauty, or hurt, or fear, or joy or hope. To say things that can’t be said with words alone. Art curriculum can employ a wide variety of skills, reinforcing their relevance and importance in life (geometry in creating shapes, chemistry in mixing paint or glazes, engineering in building sculpture, verbal skills in reacting to their own work or the work of others, written or spoken, cultural and earth appreciation in examining art from other times and places…). I teach art to high school students and see daily what art brings to my students. Pride and accomplishment in their eyes, a “safe place” to create and take risks, a place where struggle is sometimes needed to learn past ideas, where they can come face to face with a splash, dot, line of paint and see it as beauty. All of this and more makes me feel compelled to fight to keep art in school.
