What I think should become part of the National Standards for Art Education is that there is a qualified, good ART ED teachers for all children from Pre-K through 12th grades. Every school district should have, at a minimum, enough visual arts and musical arts teachers to provide art and music instruction for each child in a school district.

I have seen national standards, but you can have the cart before the horse. Think about it!

The children who have a grounded art education will learn more about science and math than those who do not. They will learn about lines, color, spectrums, textures, and a wide range of other equally important concepts and practices they really need for math and science.

The children who have a grounded art education will learn more about judging the product not the person.

There are so many more advantages that make a child's education more complete because of their art education that begins in elementary school.

You may quote me!

Hope this helps!
