Why Learn About Art?
Learning about art is important because
understanding the role of the visual arts in
contemporary society and having the capability to
use the visual arts are essential components of
being well educated for success in our times.
Art is humanitys most essential, most universal
language. It is not a frill, but a necessary part
of communication. The quality of civilization
can be measured through its music, dance, drama,
architecture, visual arts, and literature. We
must give our children knowledge and
understanding of civilizations most profound

of its distinct forms defines those qualities
that are at the heart of education reform in the
1990's--creativity, perseverance, a sense of
standards, and above all, a striving for
excellence. Richard W. Riley, former U.S.
Secretary of Education
