Why should Fine Arts be considered as an elective ? Fine Arts is a course taken for students in school to determine their abilities in such activities. Fine Arts should be considered as an elective course because not every student wants to be in a Fine Arts’ related career activity, it will not count against the student if they decide to take the course or not, and there's no special SOL for certain classes in this department.
How many fine art classes are you taking this year? 25% of students are taking one or no fine art classes this year. More fine art classes should be required because they are fun and help students express themselves, some students won’t take them because they had bad experiences in the past, and they are a relaxing break from coursework.
In the article, “Why we undervalue a liberal arts education”, written by Adam Chapnick posted March 6, 2013 explains people to understand the importance of liberal arts degrees. He wants people to how the importance is the same as STEM degrees. Most people believe STEM degrees are not successful life choices. He believes people don’t know what they learned so they need to teach liberal arts better and different so the people who graduate actually know what they learned. This article is not a credible source it is just his claims. Adam Chapnick’s article “Why we undervalue a liberal arts education,” needs more facts and reasons to back up his claims because his article is not factual mostly opinionated and to be credible facts must back up
Steve Jobs once said that “The reason that Apple is able to create products like the iPad is because we've always tried to be at the intersection of technology and the liberal arts.” Apple is now a multinational company selling more and more products every day. Their success can be credited to the balance between knowing what people want and how to give it to them. Figuring out how to give people what they desire is the technological part of Job’s foolproof equation. The word liberal is loosely defined as free, free speech, free thought, free healthcare… The liberal arts degree is seen as the study of expression in different medias like visual art or literature. Many want to completely obliterate the liberal arts degree and others think more
Education. It has one meaning, but conjures up diverse experiences based on the person and period of their life. Had I been asked the definition of education from the age of five to ten, my answer would have simply been: “Howe Hall AIMS.” Containing kindergarten to fifth grade, the Arts Infused Magnet School, also known as AIMS, managed to maintain a small student body. Due to a minuscule population and minimal admissions after kindergarten, there was a camaraderie among all. Toward the end of fifth grade, I faced the decision of keeping the camaraderie, environment, and close friends or leaving it all for another school. After much consideration, I chose to leave. However, the decision I made vaulted me into a school where I was virtually
In my first year of college, I found myself frequently disagreeing with certain kinds of people in my classes, especially non-science majors. I met many different kinds of people, and I was able to get along with most; however, it was not the same for certain others. Most of my peers with whom I did not get along majored in things other than biology; I noticed that we differed fundamentally in our way of thinking. One such memorable experience was in my first year seminar class, composed mostly of students majoring in biology, but undoubtedly with a few exceptions. The professor asked us to debate our views on evolution. Since there is more than enough scientific evidence supporting evolution, I felt that I knew enough about the subject to
A pluralist art curriculum explores issues of social equity by bridging the individual with the world, which is essential because misconceptions about minority populations can lead to ineffective school cultures, disengagement in learning, lower standardized test scores, and weakened relationships with others (Chappell & Cahnmann-Taylor, 2013). Conversely, social equity issues are not recorded in the CCSS statistical achievement gains documents, leaving educators few valid tools of measurement for marginalized populations, and this project could help raise awareness and provide documentation of measurable growth (Chappell & Cahnmann-Taylor, 2013, p. 245). Therefore, in order to help address the achievement gap, create a sense of belonging in
While a substantial amount of students see the opportunity to make a fair living from earning a college degree, there are students who look to pursue their passions. Many instances people view college as a gateway into the middle class if they aren’t of the wealthy already. So they venture out to study as an engineer, doctor, lawyer, or ect, in hopes of making over $100,000 or as close to this as possible. However when arts students take on college the expectation to get paid high wages like that is unlikely. Bring up the question is college and an arts degree really worth it? The worth of an arts degree is not always worth the expense of college because of possible student loan debt, salary makeup gain and jobs for artists sometimes require bachelor 's degrees.
There is a lot of jobs you can have in the field of law. You can be a cop, lawyer, or maybe even a correctional officer. In order to attend law school you don't need a specific pre-law degree. However it is necessary to have a bachelor's degree. Specialized undergraduate degrees are not necessary either because schools are most likely to promote diversity among candidates. There is also no requirement to get a degree in political science or pre-law.
I would like to study illustration as it has become clearer to me that this may be the right course for me as well as the right career path. From a young age up until this day I have always had a creative drive and an interest in art. Growing up I was involved in various sorts of art projects and workshops outside of school and during school breaks on recommendation of my teachers. One of the workshops I was involved with was with Peacock Visual Arts, which is an art centre located in Aberdeen that would provide workshops to kids during the summer, it was there my passion for art, primarily sketching grew but at the time I did not have the clear focus to know what it was I wanted to study at university.
You know why i'm against fine arts is because they don’t help you learn anything. At school you’re supposed to be learning stuff not goofing off in class and getting into trouble. I wouldn’t mind fine arts but it’s also a bad activity your brain is not getting any work at all, it’s just the stupidest thing.( henderson) mia
Yes, these costs are unnecessary, because students should not have to take a fine arts class in order to get a diploma and succeed in life. If students need an outlet then they need to make to make time to go to an after school program. I believe what is unnecessary about the whole situation with fine arts is that if they fail the class then they would have to take it again next year and waist two credits to have an unneeded skill in life. For example, you don't need an art class in order to pay taxes like you do with math and English. Just think, what is more important in life, painting a picture, or paying bills?
Are you trying to decide whether you should take a business course, an engineering degree or study performing arts? But you are faced with questions as to why you should study performing arts in the first place? What kind of job are you going to get when you graduate?
The disciplinary area of Arts deals with a wide variety of topics. Some typical examples include paintings, sculptures, music, and literature. This paper most directly deals with the literature aspect as it compares the themes featured in the two novels that were introduced in the HC 100 class. While both Robert Kurson’s Pirate Hunters and A.G. Riddle’s The Atlantis Gene contain similar themes such as choices, fear, persistence, and exploration, they differ due to the fact that Pirate Hunters focuses mainly on personal discovery, whereas The Atlantis Gene emphasizes on more generalized and important themes like power, secrets, and making sacrifices to help others.
The big debate in someone’s head when they are a senior in highschool and are getting ready to graduate is if they are planning to attend college, then what college to attend is the big question. For students that want to pursue art in college, then the big question is if art school is the way to go or “traditional” college with just a major in some medium of art. I believe that if anyone wants to be an artist or wants to do something in the art field, that they would benefit more from an art school than a school whose sole purpose is not to prepare students with access into the art world because of their high quantity of like minded students, and it provides students with more time to focus directly on artwork. Though it does generally cost more than a traditional university or college.
