The Arts : Should be a mandatory part of every schools curriculum for every degree .
Krisztian, I think 'education' is the key. I'm simply promoting ' art-education; painting, drawing, carpentry/shop, music, film, dance, voice, script writing, art-glass, metal work etc..... ....... When you think of the skills you learn through 'Art' / shop / music, etc. ( problem solving, channeling your feelings in different ways etc ) ... they are in line with the skills YOU as an individual - learn with 'mathematics' , 'language' , these are necessary skills to use in your own way to grow and you wish to grow. Everyone learns in different ways - ART-training Honors this....and looks at it as different ' skills' vs. you're not the same / the oddball because you learn though : visual arts, hearing, hands-on, philosophical thinking, numbers - analytical thinking, etc.... Art can also help people realize how much alike they think : artists/ designers and scientists in certain fields, etc..... I think the word 'mandatory' is not the best word for me to use - since it's drumming up a negative connotation -but most people don't realize how much they can learn from art until they take the classes - we have been socialized to think it's just 'playtime' .... in general - .... I am promoting more free-decision making, helping people channel their " learning-thinking-skills " in ways that will best fit them / Their OWN needs---this is what exposure to "Art classes" does for people. ... it's amazing...

'mandatory' meant it would be a required course. My thinking is that as we age, we learn a lot. our personalities change, our likes, dislikes, interests. our problem solving skills improve. so by taking art as a mandatory part of the degrees curriculum , you are able to continue to expand your skills for what you are doing at that time. ... because if you only took art in grade school - you learn on a grade school level. when you take art in grad school it takes on a different concept for you - you're expanding your horizons - ..." mental-play" with a variety of artistic skills changes as you do.......my Mother, for example took an art course in her 30's - she had 5 children, and was very feminine and loved being a stay at home Mom in the 1950's-60's. .... I was shocked (as a 10 year old ) that what Mom wanted to take a course in was "shop" - Carpentry. She made breadboards - beautiful - I have them in my house today - 50 years later......! she loved shop!..she loved design- who knew? she never had a chance to express it before that time-

Hi Barry - your are right on target I think.. ..when people tell me art is a hobby, that's fine for some but I first point out the art in 'design' = cars, aerospace engineers, scientific instruments, inventions, the art in a teachers lesson plan can reach more children if it's focused on how each child learns ...and everything around us is art - art teaches many things, one is problem solving - . since childhood art has always been 'serious fun' for me; that became my career...

Global youth unemployment is off the charts all around the world. Will the international community continue to ignore their plight? WARNING.
I agree Barry - ... we /the voters / hire and fire the people/politicians with our votes. We pay for bridges, roads, transit, then we pay to use them, then we pay taxes and higher toll fees to fix them up , and we pay high salaries for people to run them... .why do bridges and mass transportation cost BILLIONS ? ?? ...did you know that the current administration is planning to make it mandatory for small businesses to auto-deposit employees checks, charge the employee a tax to take their money out of their bank because of auto-deposit, and make the employer pay a auto-deposit tax ...? ! ..things have to change....
