Some thoughts:
In recent years  teachers and stake holders have begun to re-examine what education means for students and there has been a growing emphasis on the importance of all kinds of learning (apps; games)

The world is changing faster than ever. New technology delivers new ideas, gigabytes of information, news of art and resources shared by social media.

Arts  have an an important impact in education. Students can love and appreciates Arts even they are not studying Arts a a main subject.

There is nothing to stop any student enjoying Arts. Its benefit is remarkable in a complete education.

“Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.” 

Leonardo da Vinci
