Education and the ARTS!

  1. The arts, like SCIENCE, are about discovery and invention.
  2. The arts, like SOCIAL STUDIES, are about worlds and cultures beyond our personal experience.
  3. The arts, like MATH, are about systematic divisions of time and space.
  4. The arts, like LANGUAGE ARTS, are about creativity, communication, and interpretation.
  5. The arts, like SPORTS, are about pushing to the limit for a singular achievement and working cooperatively to achieve a single goal.
  6. The arts are also about PLAY, and play, too is essential to learning.
