For some people art is just something you put on your refrigerator doors. It is something you have to do for
schoolwork, or to while your time away. In truth, there truly is something beneath the surface of art that will
tantalize every student and teacher. And this is the truth behind art education.


Q. What Is An Education In The Arts?
A. Art Education is the means by which a student gains an understanding of form and design. An education
in the arts is typically divided into three areas - the fine arts, such as music, drama, sculpture or painting, the
general arts, programs such as education, criminology, etc, and design, such as graphic design, web design,
or interior design.


Q. Why Arts?
A. Art has a great power to influence people. It also has a significant effect on the history of man. Art may
seem like it is just something pretty, but under the hood it boasts of a pretty powerful engine. One that has
shaped the world, and indeed your very life. You can't go one day in the span of your life without being
exposed to some form of artistic design, from the


A wise man once said that an education in the arts is the absolute best education one can have because it
exposes you to the most general field of studies. Over time, you will know a little about everything. If you
chose a more specialized field, you would gradually learn more and more about less and less. And I'd rather
know a little about everything than everything about something, don't you agree?


1. Express Yourself


Art is by far one of the most rewarding careers because, unlike a career in the sciences or a trade, it allows
you to express your creativity. And no two days are the same. The power to captivate and inspire is also
very rewarding. Hasn’t the Mona Lisa drawn its share of oohs and aahs? And hasn’t many a tear been shed
at the beautiful works of art around the world? Man has always expressed his deepest thoughts and desires
in a tangible form. This form is Art.


Industries need artists who have had a good education in Art. Creating labels, stickers, and advertisements
for their products isn’t easy. These things require plenty of thought and design. Every detail has been
considered to make its effect on the consumer optimal. Have you ever been interested in a product simply
because of the packaging? This is art at work.


2. Art Is Everywhere


- Color
- Psychology
- Design esthetics
- Advertisements
- Television & Movies
- Furniture
- Clothing


3. Who Should Study Art?


Almost everyone has gone to art class in grade school or high school. Even those who are not artists can
benefit from an Art Education. They will come to appreciate the rich history and significance of Art.


4. I Want to Learn! How do I Sign Up?


Art education is not confined to undergrad studies. It also extends to tutors, art classes, vocational classes
and other learning methods. Many schools exist that teach the history, principles and appreciation of Art.
These schools carry the tradition of imparting to the next generation the significance of art.


5. The Rewards Of An Art Education


You may be tempted to think you will be able to wing it through a career without any formal training. That
is possible, but not likely. Industries are on the lookout for those with professional education. Even with an
education from a post-secondary institution, in this field, you never stop learning and keeping up with
technology.


An Art Education is clearly important to artists and laymen alike. It may not be the path everyone takes, but
it is the path that richly rewards those who take it. The riches here are not only of the material kind but that
of a good education and a heightened appreciation of the world around you.
