    Cutting art from schools!

    So, a friend and I were talking the other day. And, he tells me that the Minneapolis Public School district is cutting art classes from a good chunk of schools around here. Not just visual art, but music and dance as well. How messed up is that?

    Art is life!! I feel like kids--no, people in general--learn better when art is involved. Kids love art! I love art! I learned more in art and music classes than I did in any of the basic classes. You can learn basic math through music, and you can learn geometry through visual art!

    I feel like we should keep art in classes, what do you think?

    That's the most stupid thing that the govt could do.... art as u say is life. Is sometimes the only way for ppl to espress themselves!!!! because for them that's the only way and that is totally ok! If they take out art from schools they are taking peaces of life and heart from the schools

    PS: they are not only wanting to take out from school visual art... they are wanting to take out music as well... I am very upset about that.. 'cos as art is life for u.... music is my life and I bet there are a lot of kids that think so about music as well...

    Wow I would sue them for that. Me I'm an artist and if they did that to my school I would so sue. They should know that kids r going to detest this. I would think that the teachers would say something but if it makes time for their classes I highly dout they would. But that would like leave many poeple without a job and that is soo not cool. And plus they r making it to where it's harder for anyone who is good in music. dance, or art to get through life cause that may be what they were going to maijor in.
    I sooo dont like this. And Llike I said before I would sue. So yeah I hate that.

    Re: Cutting art from schools!

    I don't know what is wrong with the school system and government. Cutting art from school is really inhumane. Without art in our lives it would be plain. Children start off of art when they start school. Some just pick it up along the way and better that ability. I feel very offended actually being an art student and wanting a career with it. Art is life and without art the world wouldn't seem the way we want it to be.

    I don't see that happening because art is freaking fundamental in our learning. In my school you need to take art because it is required by the school board otherwise they won't let you graduate.

    That is true ketaro, but that does not happen in all schools..... By what I have heard they want to take it out because is not "escencial".... That's what I've heard.... I know and many ppl know too that is not true. Arts are as essencial as math, english and all of those.

    I go to an art school. So this information comes as a surprise to me. Art is life as you stated, sprout. It creates the very basis of imagination, carving out parts of our personalities. It's rediculous that they will restrict schools from having art classes. School cannot be all just about learning. Kids will get bored as hell.
