Currently, a number of schools have been recorded to have cut art education from their curriculum. The big question is, why do they have to do so? As a result, many children are not in position of accessing music, theatre and art skills. However, art is something that is fun to every child. The kid is capable of diving into the finger paints and come up with the best picture. Art education is essential to children in helping them to cover a number of fundamental levels. The following are the main reasons why art education is important to the children.
