I thought I would share this philosophical overview I put together that I
have shared as a lead in piece for professional development sessions that I

THE FUNCTIONS OF ART
Art helps us to find a vehicle with which to speak when no traditionalš
means allows us a comprehensive enough avenue to express ourselves fully.
Art gives us a springboard to explore new and unguessed at places within
ourselves, keeping alive the wonder of that which we call life.
Art provides us with a road map with which to navigate the world we live in
and find our own sense of reality as we traverse it.
Art supplies us with the tools to celebrate that which we find beautiful
and, in turn, attempt to try and create our own beauty.
