    Everyone knows that kids in art class learn nothing. If you wanna learn art, do it on your own time.

    What a good school needs is 9 hours of hardcore academics.
    A waste of tax dollars??? Where the f*** do you live?? Under a rock??? Do you even pay taxes?? Are you even old enough???

    Art is very neccessary! Without art (be it music or visual), this planet would be nothing more than a boring ball of dirt and grass; where the people had no other form of expressing themselves without having to resort to violence or some sort of verbal abuse.

    Without art, certain students wouldn't be able to comprehend certain subjects--like math. I used to be one of those kids. It was through art that I was able to comprehend math. It was through art that I was able to understand a lot of things in school. I never listened in class, unless I was drawing. Most kids took notes--I drew.

    If it wasn't for visual arts and music theory, I'd have no education what-so-ever. So, don't you dare think that art is a waste of tax dollars, because if that were the case, people wouldn't be making money off of your sorry a**. What, with all the cartoons and merchandise that comes with the territory. Not to mention the people who take the time and energy to make all of the nifty designs and graphics that I'm sure that you put on your computer's desktop or your web site's background.

    Art is VERY important!!! Not just in schools, but in life as well.

    Wow. That's really sad. How can you cut art out of schools like that? Art is, and has always been, an important part of civilation for thousands of years. This goes as far back as Egyptian pottery and even the pyraminds themselves on through history to Botticelli and Picasso. Removing art is like taking away a large piece of human culture. To remove all the arts...even dancing, is something that shouldn't be done in school. Some would even say that writing is an art, but you don't see schools cutting that out.
    You are not your job. You are not your bank account. You are not the contents of your wallet. You are not your ****ing Khakis. We are the all seeing all dancing crap of the world. You are not a beautiful and unique snowflake you are the same rotting organic matter as everything else. We are all part of the same compost heap.

    Good point. Writing is considered an art-form. Yet, there's mad english and poetry classes in schools. I don't understand. Why not cut english? Hell, math plays a huge role in art. Why not cut math as well?

    True, art isn't as important to society as it used to be. You don't see people awed by marvelous paintings or talk of great painters anymore.
    But I think that art is a tradition that we shouldn't let die. Some time ago, being artistic was a greatly admired skill and there were many schools for it if you excelled in it.

    Re: Cutting art from schools!

    Art should be a basic class offered in third grade, fifth grade, seventh grade, ninth grade, and as a possible elective in every grade after.

    Music should be taught in second grade (basic concepts) and again in fourth grade (also fairly basic concepts). After this there should be many different instruments you can play in school bands and the like, but it should not be mandatory.

    Dance belongs in dancing school and nowhere else. I recall the once yearly line dancing we were taught in my school, none of us thought to kindly of it since we live in New York, about 1500 miles from the nearest area where line dancing is practiced.

    I do not support art in college however, I feel that true art is something which you develop on your own and in your own style. And I will state that art, unlike dance and music is a hobby and not an occupation.

    I think one cannot develop art without any guiadance.
    Music is not just a hobbie...... there is many ppl that works in music, and they are paid for it. I plan to workon music too and not teaching it.... but music performance. That is more than a hobbie.
    SOmething that I agree with u is that the basis on every kind of art shold be thought from elementary (or even kinder) to HS.
    For me art maked the person more cult.
