The arts have emerged from the education reform movement of the last decade as a vital partner in the continuing effort to provide our children with a world-class education. Arts education benefits the student because it cultivates the whole child, gradually building many kinds of literacy while developing intuition, reasoning, imagination, and dexterity into unique forms of expression and communication. Because these experiences open up a transcending dimension of reality, there can be no substitute for an education in the arts, which provides bridges to things we can scarcely describe, but respond to deeply. In the simplest terms, no education is complete without the Arts.
(Excerpted from the National Standards for Arts Education)
"An education in the visual arts ...shapes our thinking about the world and leads us to create new
knowledge through visual form."
(Teaching Visual Culture, Kerry Freedman)
