A power point describing why the arts are important to schools


  • 1.Painting is easy when you don't know how, but very difficult when you do. ~Edgar Degas

2. MY ARTS JOURNEY 3. I have always believed that life is all about growing and nothing shows growth in a persons life more than the art that a person dose or fills their life with. I have always believed that life is all about growing and nothing shows growth in a persons life more than the art that a person does or fills their life with. 4. When I was young my life was all about art and drama. I loved painting and acting .Nothing was safe from my art. The walls, floor, my pets and even my mum. If it was stationary it was a canvas and brushes just slowed me down. 5. Once I got older however, art became less splashes of colour and colourful lines and it became more about portraits and details. 6. This became a problem as I could not draw like they wanted me to and soon I simply stoped and looked for another outlet 7. And I rediscovered: DRAMA 8. Drama set me free! Because of drama I met new friends, got to dress up in silly costumes and could be a completely different person, no mater what they were like 9. If there was something I loved more than doing art it was doing drama, playing puppets and coming up with costumes. Drama combines the best of both worlds 10. The thing I loved the most about drama and art was that it could take me any place I wanted, A place were I could be any thing I wanted to be, dress any way I wanted and just have fun 11. But some children never get this chance because Drama and the arts is not a priority for schools when it should be 12. The arts allow people to view the world in any way that they want too. This is why the Arts are so important to schools because everyone deserves the chance to see the world in a new way, or through someone elses eyes Drama and the Arts give children a way to express their feelings , to get rid of anger and to generally have fun making a lot of noise and mess. 13. Because every child is an artist and if not encoured that creativity fades away. And the world goes from this to this 14. Every one has artistic talent when they are young, we are all imaginative and If all children where encouraged then more adults would continue to be artistic and imaginative 15. Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up. By Pablo Picasso 16. The End 17.
