Hi Vicki - trying again; I love your question, although it is difficult
because I think there are many
answers - some of my answers include 1) trying to relate art to the student's
2) getting across the universality of art for all people, including art as
one of the first "languages"
3) studio allows for the individual to have concrete evidence of their own
creativity 4) to convey
some of the "magic" of visual art, the illusions and puzzles of trying to
create 3D on a 2D surface
5) the power of emotion that can both be communicated to the viewer as well
as experienced by the
creater. .. . . . . 6) fun and enjoyment. . . . so many more good luck
