ArtSchools.com, an online directory of art colleges, discusses why art is so powerful and why art education cannot be ignored.
According to a March 5th article published by Atmore News titled “Is Art Worth It?” art is a form of expression that can not be matched. Art is a creation of the imagination that shows what one is thinking and feeling. Art is a vital part of culture and of the past and the future.
The article says that art opens hidden doors. It reveals things that are hard to find without art. The article asks the reader to picture a world without music. Picture that, a world without rhythm and melody. Music is a form of art people depend on everyday, whether it be in the car or on the dance floor. The article also says that theater, drama, and cinema are essential to our culture. Society depends on theater and cinema to lift spirits and entertain.
Andrew Girard, a representative at ArtSchools.com, a directory of art colleges, says that art is a vital part of culture and society. “Our society relies so much on art,” he says. “It's an important part of our culture and an outlet for expression. Everyday people watch television, listen to music, and go to the movies. Art is more than just painting and opera. It’s an extension of an individual’s personality and passion. Art moves people to make changes in their lives and it helps them understand feelings that have been repressed from traumatic instances. It’s one of the most powerful types of communication and expression there is.”
Unfortunately, art has been placed on the back burner, Girard explains. “Many schools, once rich in art, have cut art programs from their curriculum to focus on math and science,” he says. “Art has been known to enhance analytical skills and promote healthy communication in students. Taking that away is doing children a disservice.”
