When push comes to shove, art class has a great strength in the
educational process. It is a place where students get to APPLY what they
learn in other areas like math, reading, science, social studies, etc.
Sometimes art teachers even give the students a much better CONCRETE
understanding of a concept before it is taught in the regular classroom.

I taught in a regular classroom for 5 years before the art teaching
position opened for me. Looking back, I am thankful for that experience,
I know how much has to be covered, and how difficult it is. If I ran
the zoo, all preservice teachers in all areas would spend a year
teaching in an elementary classroom. (ducking)
