“The Opposite of War isn’t Peace – It’s Creation!”

Jonathan Larson

The world we live in is increasingly complicated and we find ourselves with the daunting challenge of preparing our children for the day that they must take their place as functioning, contributing citizens in society.

The increase in bullying and school shootings are bombarded with images of violent behavior, and encouraged to adopt vapid, insipid values.  Now, in a culture with an ever rapidly changing paradigm, it has also become clear that many of the established “rote” methods of teaching are no longer effective.  

Arts Education takes young people who have been steeped in destruction and emerges them in creativity.  By studying the fine and performing arts, kids develop not only a more articulate method of self-expression, but they learn teamwork, commitment, focus and dedication.  Children who study the arts not only discover their passions (in and out of the artistic fields), but develop critical thinking skills, decision making capabilities and a higher level of self-confidence.

Last but not least, Arts Education reinforces the standard academic requirements.  Through the study of music, story and art history, students learn about cultures past and present, historical events, literary milestones, socio-political issues, even math and science. Students studying the Technical and Industrial Arts reinforce their lessons in geometry, physics and chemistry on a regular basis.  All necessary for budding engineers from auto, to architect, from rocket scientist to special effects designer. 

As the “outcast” who found herself through the Arts, I know just how much it chan change a child’s world view and self-view.  i strongly advocate Arts Education, not only int he private sector but in public school systems everywhere!

Here’s to the creative spirit in us all! – fwb
