A School That Got Changed By Adding Art in Their Curriculum

Art often times gets a bad rap! Artists are thought of being weird, disturbed, not fitting, and starving.
I wish this wasn't the case!

What I see: Artists are unique, creative, fulfilling, and devoted. As far as starving goes...they are only starving if they let themselves starve. Sure they may not get their DREAM job right away, but in what field do you? They have to work at it just like everyone else. They have to be good, and push the envelope.

I love stories like this, and love the kids believing in themselves and feeling inspired even more!

I would love to be artistic even if it made me different.

What a great video and the kids seem very happy with the system. I think everyone needs encouragement.

I agree with you that Artists are unique, creative, fulfilling, and devoted! My daughter is an artist and now illustrating children's books. Hopefully she will make some money as a career, but I do see how her art is making people happy! Someone just told her that today when they saw her illustrations. So that makes it all worth it!

I've found that young children feel less self-conscious(not just in art, but in other areas of their lives as well) when they are encouraged to be creative & artistic.

I always respect those that are artistic for their amazing work... wish I had more creative juices in my brain too!

I hate that the arts are always the first thing to go in schools. I wish I was more creative.

It amazes me the bad wrap art gets. People are creative by nature. We want to create, or at least own creative things. Look at Pinterest! It's full of art and creativity!
