When there is an economic downturn, often the first things people want to sacrifice in our schools are programs that are not considered the basics, such as art, physical education, and music. Yet these disciplines are life skills that help us to be happier and healthier in our maturity. But are we sacrificing something else? First and foremost, I believe we are eliminating the teaching of creativity--creative ways of thinking, moving, and enjoying life.
We often compartmentalize various disciplines: art is art and science is science, and in our mind they do not intersect. Furthermore, we somehow fail to value art as much as science and are more willing to do away with art.
Yet we need both to be truly creative. The fundamental skill of seeing and observing is the basis for both. Both art and science address the question “why?”
The difference is that science has procedures to try to prove or disprove a hypothesis, while art interprets what is seen through the eye of the observer.
