Ten Lessons Arts Teach

Filed under: Uncategorized — rdannen at 2:47 pm on Friday, March 27, 2009

This article talks about why teaching children about the arts is so important for their growth.  Not only does art help build their creativity, but they also learn techniques for everyday life.  For example, the arts teaches children that problems can have more than one solution and there are multiple perspectives, which is something that children should always be aware of.  There is no standardization of solution or any kind of uniformity of responses in the arts and children can take that information with them all throughout life.  The arts also teaches children how to think through and within a material.  This helps children expand their mind and think critically.  Basically what the author is saying is that through art children can have experiences that help them discover a range of what they are capable of feeling  and the arts contribute to the growth of children’s minds.  It is important for art lessons to be taught by skilled teachers who take time to teach the children art correctly.  I think the article is does a good job of explaining the importance of children learning art and the author brings up points that I never thought about before.
