Get an insight about art, the force of life, art education, arts education partnership, aep, art critics, artists,...


If every child in the world only thinks about scoring in math or science, then who will become a talented musician or painter? There is a world beyond the mathematical equations and scientific principles. A world of arts where only creativity and talent matters. Famous scientist Albert Einstein said, Imagination is more important than knowledge. Imagination gives rise to new ideas that will bring changes in the world. It is believed that most of the advanced technologies of today's world were depicted by the artists of ancient times. 


According to the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001, arts education is considered as a core subject in the academic curriculum. But is it given that much vital importance as stated in the NCLB? Unfortunately the answer would be no. Even though every individual believes that arts education hold a great importance in the academics, the time spent for art classes in schools has decreased.

Since there are no tests conducted for arts subjects like music, dance, painting etc, school authorities are cutting down the timings for those classes. Arts education improves motivation, concentration and inspiration among the students. The Arts Education Partnership (AEP) is such an association which has a long term mission of providing high-quality arts education for every young person in the country.

Study program offered in arts education by the online and campus colleges will open up several career opportunities to the aspiring individuals. In addition to the role of an arts teacher, they can even choose the career as art critics, administrators, etc. Arts education offered in schools require highly passionate teachers, who can motivate the students to express their creative ideas and thoughts. With good communication skills, these teachers must be able to motivate the students to create, perform and achieve success in life. Since the job of a teacher is considered as a noblest profession in the society, selecting it as a career will be a right decision in life.

If this city and its governing body can do it any other metro city can also follow suit.Only thing is to take action and act on it. people can ask their respective city council to initiate efforts in this regard . If their citizen also take interest and raise their voice for this concept lot can happen soon.
