Public schools have cut back so much when it comes to art education that it is really sad these days. You cannot find many schools that have art classes anymore and don’t even get me started on music. I have seen the schools take all of these wonderful educations down to the bare minimum until I am tired of seeing it. I am thankful that I home school is all I have to say about that! Art education is important and I am going to tell you a few reasons why this is so true in this blog post today.
Art teaches children how to be creative. Without art, your kids will not learn how to successfully make things of beauty. Art is a lost art, no pun intended. Not only will art teach your child how to be creative but it also helps them to learn things such as math and science more easily. Think about it this way…if your child wants to go into advertising for his or her career, they are going to have to take some sort of art class in order to know how to show others what they have to sell. Advertising without art would be very boring if you ask me. We need to be able to express ourselves and if we don’t learn art in school where are we going to learn it?
When art is taught in school kids tend to do better in problem solving classes. This is a proven fact and it is scientifically proven as well. School minus art programs creates children who have no idea how to express their feelings and that leads to a world of problems we have already seen come to fruition in the last 10 years or so.
