I Am Education: Kids Tell All

Primo

Nine-year-old Primo can turn just about anything into something beautiful, but he’s limited to expressing his remarkable creativity at home due to his school’s lack of art classes.
In most districts, art and music are the first courses to go when budgets are cut. Today, nearly four million elementary school students receive no visual arts education.




"There are so many better things to do than watch TV and art is one of the best things to do. Maybe you should try art."

Hello, My name is Miriah Grantham. I am a student in EDM 310 at the University of South Alabama in Mobile, Al. I just wanted to say that i think this is a very important issue and every school should have some sort of art program! I believe it is so important for a child to be able to use their creativity and see what makes them stand out from the rest, what makes them different compared to others! I know there are many other children out there just like this precious little boy. I love the sentence, "There are so many better things to do than watch TV and art is one of the best things to do. Maybe you should try art." Great Post, thanks for sharing! http://granthammiriahedm310.blogspot.com/
