ArtSchools.com Affirms the Absence of Art Hurts Adolescent Education

Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) February 18, 2014

ArtSchools.com, a directory of Americas best art schools, discusses why schools should fund arts programs and how they can benefit a students future.

According to a February 11th article posted on Daily Advance titled Killing Arts Programs Only Hurts Our Future, Elizabeth City State University recently eliminated its arts program. The article says that the cut was due to a lack of funding and, like many schools, the University couldnt afford to keep art programs.

However, the article says the arts are an important part of any university, and cutting them seems to be a drastic decision. The term university actually means the whole. For a university to consider itself a whole school, the article says having an arts program would seem necessary. Art is important for building character, and it allows students of all ages to express themselves in a multitude of creative ways. In fact, some students may even perform poorly academically without having access to arts classes. The article states that students from lower socioeconomic households stand to perform better academically if they have arts education.


Andrew Girard, a representative from ArtSchools.com, a directory of the best art schools, says that all students can benefit from the arts. The arts are important to students of all ages. Whether a student wants to major in an arts profession or simply enjoys taking art classes, its an important subject for everyone, he says. The absence of art can actually be harmful to a students education. Art helps people develop necessary social and analytical skills. Without that background, some students may begin to perform poorly in other areas. To ensure all students have a great, well-rounded education, art education must be enforced.
