These also happen to be the qualities sought out by employers when they hire new employees or promote those for advancement.  Artistic skills translate across the spectrum from school to work to life skills.  What are you training for?

                        "When you think about the purposes of education, there are three,"   Horne says. "We're preparing kids for jobs. We're preparing them to be citizens. And we're teaching them to be human 
                        beings who can enjoy the deeper forms of beauty. The third is as important as the other two."

                          "My contention is that creativity is now as important in education as literacy, and we should treat it with the same status." — Sir Ken Robinson
