I really agree with you Barbara - I think the arts serve a much greater
purpose than just teaching art history or art techniques. Using the mind
creatively to solve problems, whether artistic or not, is something that
benefits all people. Learning to seek out alternatives, taking risks
with materials or ideas, pursuing a topic in depth - these things happen
a lot in art classrooms and are essential for a productive society.
