A quick thought before classes start tomorrow

This is an excerpt from the latest NCAEA newsletter I was reading this morning…

Diverse artwork can be a viable educational tool in a variety of subject areas and with both cognitive and psychological benefits for students. Art teachers should be consistent in this introduction at an earlier grade level. Art is about the spirit, the soul, and the things people value. Art education can provide a rich framework to prepare students to live, work, communicate and learn to achieve common goals that benefit the whole society (Anderson, 1999). Our students should have the background knowledge of other cultures at the earliest age possible in order for all to recognize the similarities and appreciate the differences that make each culture unique.

I’m looking forward to all the wonderful creations we will be making tomorrow!!!
