Why is art important to you?


(3-D Class from left to right: Jordan, Dylan, Mason, Nadia, Andrew, Ben, Isaac, Jamee, Abby, Ligia, Madi, James. in the back: Mr. Billy)

At the end of the three week 3-Dimensional Drawing class, I had an awesome class by the way, I asked my class of students to answer this question:

Why is Art important to you?


Here is what they said verbatim (you can match the student with the above picture):

art is inportnat because there wouldn't be painting's drawing's and I wouldn't be me without art. Without art I wouldn't be happy all the time without art.
Nadia, Age 9

its easy to use my creativity
Isaac, Age 11

I think it is a fun why to learn art! and I jest love all the classes. Thay are fun. I like Mr. Billy are shud I say... Mr. Bunny!
Rhiannon (not pictured above), Age 9

It is fun to make new things
Mason, Age 9

Madi, Age 11

Ben, Age 8

These kids crack me up. I would love to know, "why art is important to you?" Leave me a comment and let me know. Art for kids. Kids for art. I am loving teaching art to the great kids of Jamestown.

Art is important to me because I can unleash all my thoughts and emotions, and just let it all explode onto canvas, which is a healthy way to deal with your troubles!

I need art to live.
If I don't even so much as doodle in an 24 hour cycle my right hand starts to twitch.
Its one of the few things that keeps me grounded on planet earth and reminds me I'm really living this life.

Art is a portal through which all is possible. In art, I can do no wrong. I am in the moment. I am, I do; that's enough.

Jonas is another unpictured member of the class. Great to have your answer!

Thanks also to Naturegirl, StapleGenius and Kara for their answers. All three of your answers I completely agree with myself.

Art connects me to people throughout time and space. Others from other times and places communicate to me, and I communicate to the present and the future.
