I have always considered the arts a valuable tool in creating life long learning for both my children and myself. Yesterday I read an article (“Object Lesson”) by Marice Rose that explains a way of engaging students in art, history, culture, and society. It shows how to help students define art. Understanding the meaning and value of art helps students (we are all students after all – life long learners :)) develop a human connection to it.
And much more…it’s a good read.
