To add to my earlier posting.....
I asked a friend who used to teach (not art) and is now a potter, what
she viewed as the importance of the arts and education. Her answer was;
Besides reading, writing and 'rithmatic, all of what we are as people is
based on the arts.

I thought a bit about what she said as I felt that it was a sweeping
statement. I realised she was quite right in her perception. What we
learn in the three R's, is what we can do. What we learn in the arts is
HOW we live our lives.
