"Only through art can we get outside of ourselves and know another's view of the universe which is not the same as ours and see landscapes which would otherwise have remained unknown to us like the landscapes of the moon. Thanks to art, instead of seeing a single world, our own, we see it multiply until we have before us as many worlds as there are original artists...And many centuries after their core, whether we call it Rembrandt or Vermeer, is extinguished, they continue to send us their special rays."
Marcel Proust (1871-1922) French writer.
As a professional artist and educator, I know that art broadens and expands our understanding of the world. As a child who painfully struggled with math, it was art that helped me grasp the concepts. All children deserve and have a right to an rich art experience and education.
