ArtSchools.com, a leading art school directory, responds to an article published by the Guardian on January 6th, which discusses how people can help stimulate the revival of art education in schools.
According to the Guardian article titled “Let’s change the world for art students in 2014,” the past year has been a tumultuous one for art programs in school districts. Budget cuts and other funding hardships have forced many educators to nix art, music and drama programs in schools in the US and the UK. While the number of students studying art in college is decreasing, the article says this is likely a result of the cut in funding for art-related programs.
In the article, Kyran Joughin, a lecturer at the University of Arts London (UAL) says students and teachers are coming together to fight for arts education. Art activists are pushing for schools to revive art programs and provide more funding for such courses.
Andrew Girard, a representative from ArtSchools.com, an art school directory, affirms that many art enthusiasts all over the world are showing their support for the revival of art education in schools. He urges students, teachers and other instructors to do all they can to preserve art education. “Art education is an essential part of the overall school curriculum,” he says. “It provides students with a creative outlet and allows them to expand their minds. All over the world, people are recognizing the benefits of art, music and drama. I would implore all schools to take part in this art revival.”
