The importance of Art

In recent years, school curricula have shifted heavily toward common core subjects of reading and math, but what about the arts? Although some may regard art education as a luxury, simple creative activities are some of the building blocks of child development. Learning to create and appreciate visual aesthetics may be more important than ever to the development of the next generation of children as they grow up.

My Arts&Crafts Primary 3 class today. Kids were free to create whatever they wanted to. Here you have some of the results. What's the point of directive teaching in the Arts&Crafts classroom? Just wondering. So much to learn from kids.
