Transcript of What the ARTS teach us

What the ARTS teach us
how to make a pretty picture
what the ARTS REALLY teach us
The arts teach children to make good judgments about qualitative relationships.

Unlike much of the curriculum in which correct answers and rules prevail, in the arts, it
is judgment rather than rules that prevail.

The arts teach children that problems can have more than one solution...

and that questions can have more than one answer.

One of their large lessons is that there are many ways to see and interpret the world.

The arts celebrate multiple perspectives.

The arts teach children that in complex forms of problem solving
purposes are seldom fixed, but change with circumstance and opportunity.
The arts teach students that small differences can have large effects.

The arts traffic in subtleties.

The arts teach students to think through and within a material.

All art forms employ some means through which images become real.

The arts help children learn to say
what cannot be said.

When children are invited to disclose what a work of
art helps them feel, they must reach into their poetic capacities to find the words that will do the job.

The arts enable us to have experience we can have from no other source
and through such experience to discover the range and variety of what we are capable of feeling.

The arts' position in the school curriculum symbolizes
to the young what adults believe is important.

You didn't think it was just about coloring, did you?
people think
The arts make vivid the fact that neither words in their literal form nor numbers exhaust what we can know.

The limits of our language do not define the limits of our cognition.
