Art is becoming a thing of the past when it comes to our school systems these days. Art programs are being cut left and right to try to save money for other “more important” things for our kids to learn. I don’t know about you but I would rather see health being cut instead of art. Health classes these days have been turned into a way for liberal beliefs to be instilled in our children. The health classes of today are not what you and I remember when we were in school. They are teaching your children how to use contraceptives and that being gay is not wrong. While this may be all well and good in the liberal world, it is not ok to us Christians! Can I get an amen?
Art is a great way for your child to be able to express him or herself without being judged. I remember when I was in school art being one of my favorite classes because I could put whatever I wanted on the paper and it was always good enough. Making art is also a great outlet for those children who don’t excel in other classes to feel good about themselves and their abilities. You may have a child that is a slow learner, but once you put them in an art class they may be the star of the school!
Do what you can to try to get art back into your school system if it has been taken out or dwindled down. Hold a rally, make signs, talk to the principal. You may be surprised at what you and the other parents can accomplish one school at a time!
