why do we need to study art

Art stimulates both sides of the brain and allows children to learn to use their senses. The art classroom provides a safe haven for children to express themselves at school in an open, stimulating and nurturing environment. At Pinelands High, we aim to promote self-esteem, while teaching our pupils to respect the individual identities of those around them. We aim to teach our art pupils to think openly and to have confidence in their opinions on life and the world around us. Art represents a culture of questioners rather than a culture of responders, and our pupils learn that there is often more than one solution to a problem. Art provides a common ground across racial stereotypes, barriers and prejudices. Examining art gives pupils the chance to learn how to think critically.


Since most questions regarding a piece of art do not have a specific answer, pupils are encouraged to come up with their own solutions to questions. This process is a good way to practise and hone pupils' critical thinking skills, and is something that can be used throughout life. One of the main features of art is the use of symbolism by artists in their work. However, before we are able to understand what symbols mean, we must first learn how to read basic symbolism. Once our pupils understand the basic types of symbolism and how the concept of symbols work (for example, the basic concept that the colour red symbolises passion), they can use that knowledge when reading or watching any number of artistic media, anything from movies to television shows and books.


This creates a greater awareness of the environment that surrounds them, and makes children less prone to coercion and manipulation.
Some people who study arts or work in the field of arts tend to think that arts management is somehow not necessary. This is a strange way of thinking as art rarely sells, promotes or organizes itself and as there are trained professionals to do all the administrative work, why not use those. I would like to dress down a couple of myths related to the value of arts management as they, for some reason, seem to be sticking really tight even though there have been many well-trained arts management professionals for years now. I can produce this myself Some artists are multi-talents who can handle both the artistic side and the production side.


But when the production grows, it might be useful to hire help. A good producer is a multitasker who can handle ticket sales, licences, technical stuff and basically anything an artist would need. So if a right hand is needed, a producer is the right person to call. Marketing is a waste of money Some people believe that art sells itself and marketing is not, for that matter, necessary. But, if you do not know your audience or the target group, which might be interested in the production, you might market it to the wrong audience. And in that case it might be a waste of money. Reporters are able to pick it up anyway Handling the press is simply not for everybody and it is a lot more complicated that one would think.


It just isnБt enough to create a Facebook page and send out a press release to some reporters. Media relations need to be created carefully and the aims and needs of the production need to be thought out in order to achieve the best result. Surely anybody can understand that there is no point in promoting a classical music piece to theatre magazines and a bad press release is worse than not sending a press release at all. Reporters get so many press releases these days that one must consider carefully what to put in it. So in a nutshell, when a production is a bit too hard to handle, you need it sell better, you need someone to organize all that is happening around the production, you need a little arts management.
