i believe this is very important in children's education. They are able to learn about self expression and also creating something from nothing. There are no mistakes in art.This is a really cute video.

"The sculpture, on display at the busy Brussels South station, is 112-feet (34.05 meters) long and weighs over 2,755 pounds (1250 kilos). Maltese chocolate artist Andrew Farrugia spent over 700 hours constructing the masterpiece."

Inside the Paris apartment untouched for 70 years: Treasure trove finally revealed after owner locked up and fled at outbreak of WWII

Inside the Paris apartment untouched for 70 years: Treasure trove finally revealed after owner locked up and fled at outbreak of WWII | Sizzlin' News | Scoop.it
Laying untouched for seven decades the abandoned home was discovered three years ago after its owner died aged 91.

 

Caked in dust and full of turn-of-the century treasures, this Paris apartment is like going back in time.


The woman who owned the flat, a Mrs De Florian, had fled for the south of France before the outbreak of the Second World War.


She never returned and in the 70 years since, it looks like no-one had set foot inside.

Talk about stepping back in time...this is it literally! Totally phenomenal!

Love history? Here it is in stunning, if dusty, glory -- the Paris that was before the Second World War. A treasure of artifacts and perhaps memories.

The Case For The Arts In Overhauling Education : NPR

The Case For The Arts In Overhauling Education : NPR | Sizzlin' News | Scoop.it

One of the ongoing debates in education is whether so much testing in schools is taking away time for young people to develop their own critical thinking and creativity. At the same time, the White House has talked about the importance of innovation when it comes to staying competitive in the global market. The intersection of both of these issues could be the arts. Weekend Edition Sunday host Rachel talks with NPR's Elizabeth Blair about her reporting on the role the arts play in helping low performing schools improve, and in nurturing creativity that can help young people in all subjects.

Sharla Shults's insight:

For a lot of students, the one class they might actually enjoy is art class, or music. This holds true from kindergarten through high school graduation and beyond.
