Art is a discipline that takes much work and time to master, but unlike
the math and science you are doing on this level there is more than one
correct answer!

Subject: art isn't a real subject

Hello all,
I'm sure many of you have dealt with this, but maybe you could rehash it
bit for a newbie.
   A wise aleck 8th grader, who I've had discipline problems with
told me today that art wasn't a "real" subject. In a non-confrontational

manner I asked him why he believed this. His response, "because math,
science, etc, you can learn to be good at, art you can't.
   I'm wondering how many of you out there would respond to this,
