I am responding to the articles on gifted programs for students in
the arts. I feel that being gifted artistically and creatively is
overlooked in our society. It is extremely important to have programs in
the arts for gifted children. One of the rational's in other gifted
programs is that gifted children become bored in regular classrooms.
Therefore would not the gifted artist become bored in an art program which
presented no challenges for the student?
