Imagine life without pictures, movies, television, paintings, architecture, etc.. It all starts with a design....a LINE. Even if you can’t draw/paint, knowledge of art, past and present, makes a person more educated and interesting. DON’T YOU WANT TO BE INTERESTING?
I have been studying art and art history for many years and love teaching the subject and passing my knowledge on to others, even to those who say “I can’t”. I say……….“YOU CAN!!!!Here are a few reasons why art is important:
o Art stimulates both sides of the brain.
o 33% of you are visual learners.
o Studies show kids who make art, read better and get better grades in science and math.
o Making art promotes self esteem.
o We all need a place to express ourselves.
o Art stimulates perception.
o Art teaches one to think openly and be receptive to other cultures.
o Art teaches that there is more than one solution for a problem.
o Art teaches one to be creative.
o Art nourishes the human soul. (This is my favorite)
o Art is valuable all by itself.
All I ask is for an inquisitive mind and the desire to apply oneself.
Expect greatness from yourself…..BE GREAT!!!!
