I believe it is important for a student to learn about the arts as well as the more academic subjects in order to have a well rounded education.   The study of fine art teaches students to appreciate beauty and to be more compassionate toward other people different from themselves.  Learning about art can help students communicate their feelings and improve their self esteem.  "Logic will get you from A to B.  Imagination will take you everywhere"  Albert Einstein
