My name is Steve and I have the best job in the world – teaching at an art school. Most parents think it’s important for their children to study math and languages, but believe me, art is no less vital for your little one to grow into an intelligent, versatile person with a sensitive soul. When I see my students express their innermost thoughts, aspirations and feelings in color and shape, I feel like I’m getting to really know them. You can live just a door away from a person, meet them at work every day and talk to them on coffee breaks, but you’ll never see the underside of their mind as openly and brightly as in a piece of art produced by them, be it a breathtaking painting or just a paper sculpture they unconsciously folded during a staff meeting. So don’t underestimate the power of art and encourage your kids to try their hand at it!
